Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Treasure and typhoons, conflict and greed, plus a cast of intriguing characters and a weighty issue at its heart – Frank Pope’s tale has all the ingredients of a classic thriller. But it’s all true. A stunning debut."--Nicholas Evans, author of THE HORSE WHISPERER
--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

When Oxford archeologist Mensun Bound—dubbed the “Indiana Jones of the Deep” by the Discovery Channel—teamed up with a financier to salvage a sunken trove of fifteenth-century porcelain, it seemed a dream enter­prise. The stakes were high: The Hoi An wreck lay hundreds of feet down in a typhoon-prone stretch of water off the coast of Vietnam known as the Dragon Sea. Raising its contents required saturation diving, a crew of 160, and a fleet of boats. The costs were unprecedented. But the potential rewards were equally high: Bound would revolutionize thinking about Vietnamese ceramics, and his partner would make a fortune auctioning off the pieces. Hired as the project’s manager, Frank Pope watched the tumultuous drama of the Hoi An unfold. In Dragon Sea he delivers an engrossing tale of danger, adventure, and ambition—a fascinating object lesson in what happens when scholarship and money join forces to recover lost treasure.

Some years ago, I happened on several Ebay auctions of blue and white covered jars and bowls which were part of the Hoi An Hoard. The description said they were 500 years old and had been recovered from the bottom of the South China Sea. I did some quick Internet reading on the Hoi An Hoard and my interest was sparked. I bought several lots of the beautiful pottery which had rested on the sea floor since before Columbus came to the New World. (From reading Dragon Sea I now know that they are pieces of lesser interest and beauty!)

I recently read that a book had been written about the salvage operation. I quickly ordered Dragon Sea. I read it just as quickly. The story of the Hoi An Hoard is a well written, fascinating tale full of bad guys, good guys and really over worked guys. It is the tale of fortunes won and fortunes lost by gambling on the sea and its hidden treasures. Author Frank Pope, who was actually involved in the Hoi An operation, weaves a quick moving story with wonderful characters. The best part is that those characters are real people -- each with an agenda of his own. The book is filled with wonderful detail -- from the spraying of the beer girls to the skin conditions of the saturation divers who worked for more than a month at incredible depths. But Pope's very best descriptions are of being caught at sea when the Dragon Strikes and the crew and barge are caught in the teeth of a major typhoon. You feel as if you are really there -- and are glad you're not. Pope teaches about sunken treasure, saturation diving,archeology and the politics of academia with ease.

I no more than put the book down than my husband snatched it up. He read deep into last night and awoke this morning with his glasses still perched on the end of his nose. Two thumbs up from our household! P.S. I treasure my 500 year old jars from the bottom of the South China Sea even more now that I know the amazing story of suffering, intrigue and greed which brought them to me.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Wreck Adventure since Shadow Divers 25 décembre 2011

There are already plenty of great reviews on this book so I won't repeat what has already been said. Basically, this is the best wreck/ true adventure book I've discovered since Shadow Divers. Pope does a very good job of weaving a readable narrative that brings the players to life without a major bias towards one or another of them. Particularly interesting are some of the side stories that he weaves into the narrative, discussing little-known aspects of the maritime archaeology trade and professional diving. Great travel read!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Readable history 6 septembre 2012

Will be going to Vietnam this year and found this to be very interesting. A different take on what is usually given on the history of Vietnam. I was fascinated by the way China was so deeply involved in Vietnam. The author presented his characters as interesting people, gave very detailed technical facts about the dives that were mostly understandable and wrote with a wonderful enthusiasm about his story.

The author Frank Pope explains in detail the amount of work undertaken to retrieve the artefacts from the sunken trade ships and the resulting disappointments regarding the sale of the recovered items.
Recommended reading for collectors and historians interested in Asian ceramics.

Being an old, U.S. Navy veteran, and an ex-diver, I could relate to everything in the book. I've been in some of those situations and the book really brought back some old memories, some of which I would have liked to forget.
