Gribble and Athiros recount the stories behind some of the many ships wrecked off the Cape. I look forward to reading this book with my nephew one day. As with Michael Walker’s books, the focus is on the human element in these events. The artwork is by maritime artist Peter Bilas.

Athiros is the owner of Historical Media, which publishes a newspaper called The Cape Odyssey (dedicated to appreciating history rather than current events), and has published several books on Cape history including this one.

You can order the book through the Historical Media website, or perhaps find it in Exclusive Books.
