Eight billion dollars? worth of Inca gold and silver are rumored to be hidden in an unmapped region of the Andes. This is the captivating story of that fabled treasure and the centuries-old spell it has cast on many, including a young American student, Peter Lourie. While completing anthropological fieldwork in Ecuador, Lourie heard the legend of Atahualpa?s ransom. The Incas gathered seven-hundred tons of gold (Sweat of the Sun) and silver (Tears of the Moon) to purchase the freedom of their king, Atahualpa, from Pizarro and his conquistadors. After the Inca ruler?s murder, the treasure vanished into the forsaken Llanganati range of the Andes. Lourie abandoned his graduate school ambitions to search for Atahualpa?s ransom. His quest for clues and his journey into the heart of the Andes is an absorbing and exciting detective story. Lourie?s account is also unforgettable for its revelations about the lives and characters of seasoned treasure hunters, the obsessed few lured by the siren song of legendary gold.

"Atocha Treasure Adventures: Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon" is written by one of the very few people who worked for the Treasure Salvors organization, in the 'trenches', day after day for almost two decades. Syd Jones started out as a diver, worked his way up to captain of several Fisher salvage vessels, and ultimately took over as the operations manager of the company in later years. He and his wife, KT, were both essential to the daily workings of Mel Fisher's famous salvage company, headquartered in Key West, Florida. This book is a testament for all of us who labor at sea, be it in body or in mind, pursuing lost wealth. Readers will absorb themselves into the complex themes endemic to the relentless race for the 'mother lode' of the Atocha, the richest treasure wreck in the western hemisphere to date. This is a page-turner you won't be able to put down! This latest edition contains new information and photographs from Havana, Cuba, regarding the Atocha and Margarita, personally collected by the author in 2015, 25 years after the discovery of the Atocha's 'mother lode' by the Treasure Salvors crew. Contains dozens of previously unpublished photos and eight maps. Fully indexed. Grayscale. Rave Reviews !!! By Robert F. Burgess on July 15, 2014 Syd, you did a magnificent job of describing the actual events that took place from the view of one who started at the bottom and moved up to the top working as one of Mel Fisher's on-the-site divers. Great perspective that I found especially interesting because I covered the same material before the find with the historical events, then interviews with Mel, Kincaid and other old-timers from Treasure Salvors. I avoided being there during the final hoop-la but wrote about it in my books.Even ended up adventure diving years later on a chartered cat out of Belize City that turned out to have belonged to Kincaid purchased from his share of the treasure. Great memories. Your book took me right back to those days; the kind we will never see again. I miss all of those characters, Mel and Deo who have gone on to their other rewards. Thanks for this detailed journal of those remarkable events. Hope you always find whatever you search for in Life. You only go around once and you certainly are making the most of it. Best regards, Robert F. Burgess By James Bugbee (Honolulu, HI) on June 27, 2011 A true 5 STAR read! Outstanding book, so well written that you feel you are there - along on the searches for treasure and other adventures. A great cast of characters, who also happen to be real people that you begin to feel you know personally and care about. Whether diving under the Galleon to make repairs or diving off the Swordfish and probing under the sand for treasure, all the descriptions are so realistic that you can visualize the boats, people, sunsets, everything, so clearly. The photos add spice to the text and further draw you in as a participant in all that is happening. Even for someone who knows nothing about shipwreck salvage and diving for treasure, the book holds your interest and once you start, you don't want to put it down. No matter where your interests are: at sea, in the sky, or on shore, you'll thoroughly enjoy being along for the Atocha Treasure Adventure. Now, Capt. Syd and Capt. KT, what about a follow-on book about your adventures since these?
