Описание: This text chronicles the search for the treasure of the Spanish galleon Atochau which sank, greedily laden with many extra tons of plundered treasure, in the early 1600s off the coast of Florida. Jedwin Smith was granted exclusive access to the family members who are conducting the search - which has yielded enormous riches as well as extreme hardship and loss.
