Since then he has continued to write Dirk Pitt® adventures while living a life that nearly parallels that of his action hero. Like Pitt, Cussler enjoys discovering and collecting things of historical significance. With NUMA (National Underwater & Marine Agency, a non profit group begun by Cussler) he has had an amazing record of finding over 60 shipwrecks, one of which was the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley. Cussler also has a renowned and extensive classic car collection, which features over 80 examples of custom coachwork.
Along with being Chairman of NUMA, he is also a fellow of the Explorers Club (which honored him with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration), the Royal Geographical Society and the American Society of Oceanographers. Married to Barbara Knight for 40 years, with three children and two grandchildren, he divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.

...you bear in mind that this is NOT a Dirk Pitt book, and everything happening here is set on a much smaller scale. Blue Gold clearly lacks the flair of Dr. Read morePublished on Dec 30 2002 by Amazon Customer
Again, this is a good book in this series. I could not put it down. Good twisted ending also.
I'm not going to rehash the plot.... If you liked the first one... Read more
Geez, a lot of people seem to be put off by Kurt and pals, thinking they're merely cheap knockoffs of Dirk Pitt and his pals. Read morePublished on July 2 2002 by Amazon Customer
