Overview

A rotting hull of a ship...lost gold...coins...gems...Sunken Treasure!

Today treasure hunting is a big business. Searchers use metal detectors and sonar to locate treasure on the ocean floor. Divers use high-powered machinery to uncover objects buried in the sand and to raise them to the surface. And more than just treasures are discovered. A whole window into the past is opened up. A salvage can take months or even years. But it's worth it!

This narrative story about the sinking and subsequent search for the Spanish galleon Atocha couples lively descriptions with appropriately detailed illustrations. Gibbons takes readers through the history of the galleon¿s last voyage, as well as Mel Fisher¿s attempts to find the galleon and its treasures. Stuffed with information about the sinking of the ship and methods of discovering a sunken ship, young readers will enjoy this little-known piece of history.
