All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2004 January)
Gr 5-8-These books contain a hodgepodge of marine information. Dangerous Crossings travels way beyond its purported theme of ocean disasters. The chapter entitled "Ice and Death" includes discussions of the Titanic and the Endurance, whaling, the life of polar bears, and global warming. Also mentioned are past and current piracy and terrorism. Some interesting illustrations of a historical nature appear, but others seem to be fillers, especially one showing a tornado going over a cornfield. Savage Waters is more focused, discussing a variety of topics pertaining to seas and oceans. It covers tides, currents, and the Gulf Stream; there are some excellent illustrations and easy-to-understand explanations of natural phenomena. Shifting Shores covers tsunamis, tectonic plates, and ocean currents. One chapter covers the sunken ancient city of Herakleion and the fate of New Orleans on the Mississippi Delta.
