“Treasure Ship” is the story behind the story of the legend of the S.S. Brother Jonathan. The story is written in three parts. Part one establishes the background and history of this fabled ship from the date of it’s launching in 1850. Information was extracted by tracing the ownership and history of the ship from the ship’s logs. Powers details the many ownership changes, the ship’s transport utilization, near disasters, and the excitement of the California gold rush.

Part two establishes background information on the survivors, the search for the “Brother Jonathan” over a time period of over 150 years. Powers also introduces a glimpse into the subjects of Numismatics, deep sea research, and the community within Crescent City, California.
