More than 85 years after her sinking, the story of the Titanic continues to fascinate us. Now Paul Quinn brings us a fresh narrative featuring extensive survivor testimony and all new artwork. Dusk to Dawn opens with a foreword by Edward Kamuda, the president and founder of the Titanic Historical Society. Beginning at 8 o'clock as the sun sets, each chapter takes the reader through another hour of the unfolding tragedy. Numerous eyewitness accounts provide details from the passengers and crew - their actions, thoughts and feelings on that night. The narrative continues until dawn, when we see the last lifeboat taken aboard the rescue ship Carpathia. Dusk to Dawn is illustrated with twenty-seven of Paul Quinn's original color paintings, and eighty black and white archive photographs. Diagrams and inserts on special topics accent the narrative. A glossary, a bibliography and an index complete the book.

The glittering Titanic rivaled the bright colors of the sunset as she steamed westward on her maiden voyage. On board ship the cream of society laughed, dined and listened to music, and the poorest of immigrants celebrated the hope and joy of entering a new world of opportunity. This book takes you through their evening and into the night, telling the survivor's tales of the dramatic events which would turn all of their lives around. Dawn would find the majestic ship vanished, and desperate survivors floating about the Atlantic in tiny lifeboats. Explore the hours between sunset and sunrise through survivor accounts, stunning color artwork and black and white photographs. Relive the final hours of the Titanic's maiden voyage, from Dusk to Dawn.
