Riassunto: America's Lost Treasure is the pictorial account from Tommy Thompson and his team of underwater searchers -- including more than 250 gorgeous photographs, drawings, and illustrations -- of the sinking and recovery of the Central America, the remarkable story that was chronicled in The New York Times best-seller Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea. With America's Lost Treasure Tommy Thompson brings the reader face-to-face with his unique vision, one that developed the most groundbreaking marine technology in existence and sparked new maritime law, opening the last terrestrial frontier to mankind. Offering stunning photographs taken eight thousand feet below the surface -- a feat that was never before technically possible -- America's Lost Treasure chronicles life on the ocean floor, the site where the Central America rests, and the extraordinary historical treasures they brought back.
Sinossi: This volume shows the successful recovery of artifacts from a ship that sank in 1857 carrying gold from the rich California mines.
