A Master on the Spanish Main is the authorized biography of Burt D. Webber, Jr., a treasure salvor who has recovered millions of dollars in artifacts and trove from numerous shipwrecks in the Caribbean over a period of fifty years. Celebrated in 1978 for his discovery of the Nues...tra Senora de la Concepcion at Silver Shoals, he has a number of other salvage projects to his credit including the discovery of the Jesus of Nazareth, the N. S. Begona and more than thirty other lesser-known vessels. As an expatriate, living in the Dominican Republic, Burt Webber has lead an exceptional life in several venues, primarily as a successful salvor of course, but his close associations with government officials in the Dominican Republic have provided him with other opportunities for adventure, unseen and previously undisclosed. Now, in his seventh decade, he can safely elaborate on those exploits, some of which were favors performed in the interest of clients who could rely upon his wide connections in the corporate world, or the shadowy dictatorships of Central America.387 Pages... 175 Photos... 8 Maps... 7 Illustrations...
