Brought up by skin divers from the lonely reef off Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), they told of an ancient shipwreck. And then a lump of coral split open to reveal coins - the ship had carried treasure. Arthur Clarke, award-winning science-fact-and-fiction writer, and skilled diver helped mount an expedition to explore the wreck and recover the treasure. Battling time and weather, piratical snoopers and government suspicion, they dove and dove again for riches and equally precious knowledge of the past. Arthur Clarke spirited reports this unique adventure - including the strange accident that nearly took his life. Illustrated with almost 100 black-and-white photographs and 16 pages of color pictures never published before. The Library Journal called this "delightful, informative, adventurous".
