From inside front flap: In 1622 the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha sank off the Florida Keys on its way from Havana to Spain. Since then men have dreamed of salvaging her treasure of gold and silver, now conservatively estimated at $140 million. In the 1960a a man with an overwhelming will committed his life to the search. His name is Mel Fisher, and his own story has become a fascinating part of the Atocha saga.
