Diving Sunken Treasure

Jacques-Yves Cousteau AC (1910 - 1997) was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the Aqua-lung, pioneered marine conservation and was a member of the Académie française. DIVING FOR SUNKEN TREASURE is a double narrative of adventure at sea, told by the world's great explorer of the ocean's mysteries. Jacques-Yves Cousteau describes his own expedition to the famous Silver Bank, a coral reef in the Caribbean, where the crew of the 'Calypso' searched a centuries-old shipwreck for the secrets of its past and the fortune in silver and gold it might still contain. Persistence, and the latest techniques in marine archaeology enabled them to unearth the ship's remnants, almost completely concealed by the myriad life forms of tropical waters. Into the account of these discoveries, Cousteau weaves the tales of the men whose traces he is follows: the pirates, privateers and royal admirals who sailed the Spanish Main, depending on greed, bravado, courage and charisma to bring them success. Here is all the fascination of these dual quests, captured in the absorbing text and magnificent photographs of a book rich in the excitement of discovery a...

Diving Sunken Treasure

SUNKEN TREASURE Six Who Found Fortunes is the riveting true life adventures of six of the world's most successful treasure divers. Author and underwater photographer Robert F. Burgess, who has dived on some of these treasure wrecks, tells how each of these divers got into the business, how they survived, and why they were successful in finding sunken fortunes whose hiding places fooled centuries of other searchers. From Burgess' many photographs and interviews with these treasure hunters we learn the trade secrets of how they were able to successfully recover millions of dollars worth of centuries old Spanish treasure from the ocean floor. Burgess puts the reader right into the action. Here’s a sample: "How that first plunge snapped them back to reality, made their teeth clamp onto their rubber mouthpieces, made them hyperventilate in their mad scramble for the bottom, arms outstretched to embrace a fortune, eyes bugged wide! The fever was on them and there was no denying it. Only the hefty feel of gold coins in their eager hands and the cold grip of the Atlantic would in time provide any surcease to the kind of fever they felt. Soon they started popping to the surface like corks, tight-fisted, arms held out of water, wide grins behind their masks. They came to the boat with ha...
