Over the past 350 years, an untold number of ships have met their end along the northern Oregon and southern Washington coasts. Shipwrecks of the Pacific Northwest investigates some of the most compelling historic shipwrecks--from the infamous to the nearly forgotten. Explore a handful of these vessels, fated to have their final resting place along 150 miles of the rugged Northwest coastline, including near the dangerous mouth of the Columbia River. Combining archaeological analysis and new research, this unique collection uncovers the tales of peril, tragedy, and heroism along with the tangible legacies and an exploration of what remains.

JENNIFER KOZIK is a researcher, grant writer, and maritime archeology volunteer with a background in anthropology. THE MARITIME ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY investigates and documents shipwrecks in the Pacific Northwest and educates the public about the importance of maritime cultural heritage.
