A Titanic Book from TN

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Nashville-area author has written a book about the sinking of the Titanic, culled from 200 news articles after the 1912 disaster.
Stephen W. Hines has written “Titanic: One Newspaper, Seven Days and the Truth That Shocked the World,” published by Cumberland House.
The book is based on clippings from the Daily Telegraph of London. A news release from the publisher says there was much misinformation about the sinking, and it was up to the Telegraph to determine the truth.
The luxury liner sank in the Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg.
Hines has published 17 books.

Note: I know Steve. He lives in Nolensville. The book is, of course, timed to be in print on the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking.

    Many thanks for the mention, Tom. The London Daily Telegraph was under such pressure to get the news out it reported nearly everything as it came in and let its readers sort out truth from rumor. One thing I found out was that even eyewitness reports about the Titanic are not necessarily to be trusted.
