Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: THE LEGEND AND MYSTERY OF RIGEL On a frigid night in 1912 the great unsinkable Titanic sank 2 miles down to a watery grave. Many stories of heroes and villains have been passed down since that fateful night. Yet there is one hero in particular whose story has remained a mystery. Meet Rigel- the Titanic's Newfoundland dog mascot. His incredible story of courage and survival was originally published as an alleged factual account in 1912 just days after the sinking. Come along and enjoy this fictionalized story of Rigel's tragedy and triumph in spite of challenges no human could have survived! * * * Yes Virginia, there may have been a Rigel. The story of Rigel was first reported in the "New York Herald" the day the Carpathia docked with Titanic's survivors. It also appeared in a well-known book: " The Sinking of Titanic and Great Sea Disasters" which was first published in 1912 a few short months after the disaster. After that there was no mention of him at all, no disclaimers, no retractions, nothing to my knowledge. Although there has been some recent mention of him in dog books all subsequent books and movies about Titanic by historians, crew and survivors don't mention him either. Why? Was he a figment of the reporter's imagination? That seems unlikely. If Rigel and new owner didn't exist then who was interviewed? Someone playing a cruel joke while wearing a uniform and holding onto a 150-pound dog? Unlikely again, but I suppose that could have happened. The only two well-known dogs that survived the sinking were toy breeds lovingly smuggled on board the lifeboats in their owner's coats. All of the other dogs on board lost their lives including a champion English Bulldog who was lastseen trying to swim in the frigid water. Comparing a bulldog's swimming ability to a Newfoundland's is like expecting your Shetland Pony to win the Kentucky Derby. Bulldogs are among the worst swimmers in dog-dom and Newfoundlands are the absolute best. Many people are skeptical as to whether any creature could have survived a long distance swim in freezing water. Certainly none of the people did. "Newfie" owners and breeders have no problem believing a Newfoundland could do exactly what the record states. Bred to withstand the harsh conditions of the frigid north Atlantic they have been used to haul in heavy fishing nets and assist in water rescues. Newfoundlands could be called the "Polar bears" of the dog world. They have the same adaptations for swimming albeit on a smaller scale. And since Scientists have seen Polar Bears swimming 100 miles out to sea in freezing water and not looking the least bit exhausted, then why not? The near lifeboat collision was also never mentioned again. Perhaps it was dropped purposely. No one wanted to detract from the heroics of the Carpathia and crew. After pushing their small steamer full speed into the very same icefield that doomed Titanic, they deserved all the credit and praise that was bestowed on them. Finally there is the Jonas Briggs mystery. He isn't listed on either ship's crew list for that year. For many that is proof positive this was nothing more than a hoax. Apparently these people have never done genealogy research. Our ancestors were not sticklers for detail. Sometimes they'd spell names phonetically. Other times they'd scribble a name and then not be able to decipher it. I found one of my ancestor's names spelled 4 different ways.One spelling was way off. I changed Jonas to John in my book, a common name that could have been mistaken for Jonas. Taking into account the pandemonium surrounding the Carpathia's arrival there would certainly be some examples of miscommunication. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Über den Autor: Christine Jamesson had been reading and researching the Titanic tragedy for many years when she found a fascinating but little known article about Rigel. In 1990 she sent a movie script about the Titanic to a producer and although he wasn''t interested in the script, he was very interested in Rigel and suggested she write a story about him. First published as an electronic book it has now been revised and updated with 35 full color drawings. Ms. Jamesson has a paralegal degree and enjoys research projects, gardening and collecting antiquities. This is her third published book in addition to several articles and poems.
