Description:
This beautifully-illustrated book focuses on successful Spanish treasure recoveries in the Caribbean. It includes chapters about the 1622 Fleet (“Atocha” and “Santa Margarita”), the “Concepción”, the “Maravillas”, the shipwreck off Jupiter Beach, Florida (“San Miguel El Arcángel”), the “San José” (which is reputed to be the richest shipwreck in the world and is in the waters off Cartagena, Columbia), the 1715 Fleet, and the 1733 Fleet. The accompanying text provides a high-level overview of the salvage and the salvors (including Mel Fisher, Jack Haskins, Bob & Margaret Weller, Bob Marx, and Art McKee). While light in detail (except for the treatment of the “San José”), this book belongs in every sunken treasure library, if just for the pictures.
