What was it like to have been aboard a doomed treasure ship destroyed by hurricane on the Florida coast. . . and then, 255 years later, to be the first to find the treasure?!? Or to walk the sunken streets of Port Royal and hear the bell toll in the tower? It all lives again as Robert Burgess puts you into these exciting true sea tales. Fully illustrated.

About the Author:

Robert F. Burgess has spent most of his life writing about adventure above or below the sea. His books about shipwrecks, sharks, treasure diving, and underwater archaeology are acclaimed for the author's ability to put the reader in the midst of the action. An ardent sailor and scuba diver, he and his wife live in north Florida.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"When the wind blows force four or better along the stormy, bleak Out Banks at Capte Hatteras, then let the sailor beware, for here, off the dreaded diamond Shoals, where the warm Gulf Stream collides in awesome fury with the cold North Atlantic, "the Lord maketh a deep to boil like a pot." Seafaring men call it the Graveyard of the Atlantic, and it is aptly named, for the ,iles of towering waves that shoot their spume a hundred feet into the air, the innumerable swirling, sucking maelstrom currents, and the multitude of fanglike shifting sandbars along the entire North Carolina coast have for more than four centuries snared countless ships and doomed hundreds of unwary mariners. Sailing ship, steamships, freighters, tankers, pleasure boats - the angry ocean has cast all up indiscriminately on the shoals where their rusty remains stand as mute reminders to mariners -'Stay clear of Hatteras.'"
