Summary
In 1622, the Spanish ship Atocha set sail for Spain carrying hundreds of crew and passengers and a boatload of riches. A day later, a hurricane stopped the ship in its path, killing most of the people on board and dumping gold, silver, and jewels into the sea. It seemed that the enormous treasure would remain buried under the ocean floor forever. And it did remain hidden, for well over 300 years, until one determined man decided he would be the one to find it. This fascinating story details Mel Fisher's long search for the treasure of the Atocha. Readers will experience Fisher's exciting hunt for the buried riches.
