The story is presented through the eyes of the authors and goes back and forth between documenting for the reader the events of the most famous shipwreck of all time and how modern technology allows us to learn about these events from the past. By using a mini-submarine, named ‘Alvin’, the authors are able to include actual photographs that illustrate for the reader what the text describes. (Pearson Reading Street, 2010)
