Treasure Of Indian Isle: More Treasure / More Trouble by Sam Milner
Where the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River are connected by the narrow and sometimes treacherous Sebastian Inlet...there likes a unique and mysterious area. Here, over 300 years ago in 1715...a Spanish treasure fleet was wrecked in a horrendous hurricane in the shallow waters along the coast of these barrier islands. Here, 12 miles north of the inlet over 500 years ago in 1513...Juan Ponce de Leon first set foot on the continent giving it the name, La Florida. This is an area rich in history and filled with the tales of Spanish gold and ghosts, not only ghosts of ship-wrecked Europeans, but also the ghosts of the Ais, the Native Indian Tribe who inhabited this area. There is mystery and intrigue among the sea dunes, danger in the mangrove-lined river banks, and eerie examples of archaeological phenomenon where the well-preserved remains of ancient visitors are buried in the bog-lands of the tidal-estuaries.
