Reframing the American story from the vantage point of the nation's watery edges, Shipwrecked: Coastal Disasters and the Making of the American Beach by Jamin Wells shows that disasters have not only bedeviled the American beach--they created it. Drawing on a broad range of archival material--including logbooks, court cases, personal papers, government records, and cultural ephemera--Wells examines how shipwrecks laid the groundwork for the beach tourism industry that would transform the American beach from coastal frontier to oceanfront playspace and turn the beach into a touchstone of the American experience.

Jamin Wells is an assistant professor of history at the University of West Florida and is committed to researching, writing, and teaching a usable past.
