Greetings to the community of Scuba Diving.
I am a specialist in historical research on Spanish and Portuguese galleons whose common denominator is to carry out treasures.
In 2007 I published, in Spanish, the book Galeones con tesoros (Galleons with treasure) and this year, in Italian. Now I announce with pleasure that the English edition of my book is almost ready.
Galleons with treasure tells several stories, all from original documents drawn from historical archives in a number of "golden" shipwrecks in several places in the world like the Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Philippines, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay.
Thanks for your support, which certainly will not be disappointed.
I am available for further information.
Have a good diving
Claudio

Vox,
Thank you for the information. Will you be posting a link to the online stores where your book can be purchased? It can sometimes be difficult to find specific titles on Amazon. Will you have an ISBN number?

This book is amazing!

I thought it would contain some pretty photos, and a cursory history of Caribbean wrecks, but I was wrong.

'Galleons and Sunken Treasure' has the content of a textbook, but reads like an adventure novel.

5 Stars!
