In this fast-paced true account of people who have risked their lives to go where no modern man has ever gone, author Robert F. Burgess whose non-fiction books take readers from sinkings, salvages and shipwrecks into the world’s most dangerous underwater caverns, now describes true accounts of divers who one minute are enjoying the modern day world and moments later they plunge down through the water barrier into the Past. Literally. So literally that if you are that diver, you can touch the actual objects in that Past that are over 10,000 years old!

In Part 1 you go with divers for the first time ever into one of the world’s deepest and largest underwater caverns to discover the long-hidden graveyard of prehistoric elephants. Then you learn how those divers brought these heavy bones up for a Florida museum by the clever use of pillowcases!

In Part 2 the author personally leads you underwater to a deep Florida ship channel. Over the edge and down you go into 50 feet of water to see a forest of tree trunks. But these are not ordinary tree trunks. These, scientists found date back to prehistoric times. They were part of the forests that ranged far out into the Gulf of Mexico when Ice Age seas were 300 feet lower than they are today. Photograph but don’t touch the tree stumps. Scientists carbon dated what you are looking at as trees up to…years old. They survived only because they were buried all that time.

In Part 3 the author takes you off Key Largo to go treasure hunting. You are hunting a long lost Spanish Galleon, lost to centuries of searchers because it was buried underneath the bottom sand. Now it is uncovered for one of the first times since it perished in a 1622 hurricane. Why it is so intact excites the scientists in their efforts to measure and record details of this over 250 year old ship. From their efforts we learn why the ship is still intact and who the human was whose skeleton was found aboard the wreck.

In Part 4 the author lets pioneering scuba diver/explorer Bill Royal describe what it was like to dive down into the depths of a warm mineral spring to find Ice Age animal remains mingling with those of Ice Age Man. Moreover, Royal details his finding of a human skull buried in the mud that contains human brain material, a skull that scientists carbon dated to 10,000 years Before Present time.

Hang on and enjoy the ride because this is one exciting true adventure book guaranteed to take you into the Past and bring you back again to the Present…before anyone even knows that you were gone!
