Another special edition looking at one of the most interesting industries in the Florida Keys, treasure hunting. It is an industry with historic ties to the original big business' in the Florida Keys, that of wrecking. Which was basically salvaging of ships that sank in the reef that runs in front of the various Keys. We will look back at its historic origins.
Then we will look at the modern day Treasure Hunters who make their homes along the Florida Keya with a special emphasis on the most famous of all the treasure hunters in the modern era, Mel Fisher.
We will invite you to go visit to the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum too, It is one of the best museums in Key West and could rank among the best museums I have ever been in.
This is a fun show and we hope you will enjoy it too. The finale of season Ten looking back at Rosalyn Carter, and a wrap up on Jimmy Carter, plus a special show on former Vice President Hubert Humphrey is next week, and then after a break we will start our look back at President George H. W. Bush in season eleven,
