Sunken Treasure

Sunken Treasure

Storms and other dangers have sent thousands of ships to watery graves at the bottom of the sea.  The tragedies of these ships produce treasure years later, when scientists, archaeologists, and treasure hunters discover their lost cargos.  Sunken Treasure takes the reader on the journey from disaster to discovery, and explores some of the oceans’ most exciting underwater treasures.

Praise

“Before there is treasure, there is tragedy.  And with that intriguing hook begins this title on sunken treasures.  Happily, the rest of the book delivers.”
