Abstract:

This is a story about the lust for gold and treasure,? writes John Christopher Fine. In the 1600s and 1700s, Spain dominated the oceans with its fleet of galleons. Coming from the New World, these ships filled their holds with gold, silver, and treasures beyond imagining. The seaway between Spain and the New World was dubbed ?The Golden Highway.? On their journeys back across the seas, many ships were wrecked on reefs or destroyed by hurricanes. The watery depths now hold their treasures. Today, treasure divers seek their fortunes by attempting?sometimes successfully, sometimes fatally?to retrieve these hoards of riches. In Treasures of the Spanish Main, readers relive each voyage of long ago as well as witness the modern wreck divers? efforts to extract its secrets. --publisher.
