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 hands clenched over coins and handed them up to Wagner. Then down they went again, like children gleefully picking dandelions in a grassy glade and hurrying back to shower them on their beaming parents."
