" The enormous wealth of silver, gold and precious stones - treasures of all kinds - which lies beneath the sea or buried on isolated beaches and islands surely surpasses man's wildest dreams; it is the lure of these fabulous fortunes-for-the-finding that have captured the minds and energies of a veritable army of Twentieth century treasure-hunters.

This absorbing volume relates the exciting true stories of great treasures lost and treasures hunted during several centuries, many of which are still being sought today.
Herein may be found adventurous tales of daring pirates and privateers whose secret charts and treasure maps were concealed within the false bottoms of their sea chest before their notorious owners went to the gallows.
Here, too, are the stories of bold European conquerors who looted the Americas of incalculable wealth in gold and gems, only to have their priceless booty looted from them in turn by the ironic whims of Fate or the cruel toll of Atlantic crossings.
Here are the thrilling sagas of the gentleman from New York named William, and later Captain, Kidd; of Sir William Phips' galleon and the millions of dollars of treasure he extracted from it; of the Cocos Island mystery, the Barkstead treasure and many other fascinating hunts set in the New World and the Old.
