*Includes pictures *Includes accounts *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading *Includes a table of contents "They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits end." - Psalm 107:23-27 Most scientists believe that mankind was originally spawned in the salty waters of the seas, and that over millennia creatures managed to evolve into todays primates. If this is so, the oceans have made it abundantly clear that have no desire to take their offspring safely back; from the time of the earliest sailing ships, there have been countless accidents and tragedies where numerous lives were quickly lost. In fact, the planets waters have likely taken more lives than all the wars in human history, so even though lifelong sailors live much of their lives on the water, they rightly fear it. For centuries, sailors were a superstitious bunch, and there are plenty of stories and phenomena that have defied easy explanation. The 15th and 16th centuries had their tails of sea monsters, and the 20th century had its tales about the Bermuda Triangle. What many dont realize about the latter is that the stories of mysterious disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle date back to the early days of the American republic. The first ships lost in that area, with its points at the tip of Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, were powered by wind, not engines, and fewer questions were asked when they vanished because shipwrecks and other similar disasters were more common. Thus, it was only later that questions about the Bermuda Triangle were widely raised. By the mid-20th century, there were rumors and tales that soon evolved into theories that ranged from the practical to the outlandish. Then, as satellite technology improved both communication and navigation, the stories died down again, as it became easier to explain the previously unexplainable and to save those who might otherwise have been lost. Today, one rarely hears stories about the Bermuda Triangle, even as some of its greatest mysteries have never been solved, from the disappearance of the USS Cyclops during World War I to the five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers that vanished in the area shortly after World War II. As a result, questions and conspiracy theories remain. Was there ever anything truly unusual going on in the Bermuda Triangle, and, if so, will it ever happen again? The Bermuda Triangle: The History and Mysteries of the Devils Triangle looks at the history of the area, the mysterious disappearances, and the theories attempting to explain them. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the Bermuda Triangle like never before, in no time at all.
