Book Synopsis
The islanders still tell rumors of treasures hidden by the likes of Morgan, Catt, and Blackbeard in underground caves that penetrate the porous sedimentary rocks of the Bahamas, not even accessible to the most daring spelunkers and cave divers. Eventually the pirates were killed themselves, beheaded, or hanged and the treasures buried forever.
Leisurely floating without gravity along a tropical reef, Volkhardt Knappensuhl gets pulled into a blue hole. A tidal current flushes him into an underground tunnel.
This story describes his miraculous survival in an underground cave system where he makes a mysterious discovery. The romantic sailing story becomes a deadly fight with gangsters and governments until luck and powerful friendships save his life and one of the largest treasures ever found.

About The Author
Author bio image
Wolfgang Berg, born in the German North Sea port city of Bremen, and his wife, Renate, came to the United States on a passenger ship in 1970. During a fierce storm that lasted for five days, he watched fifty-foot-high waves, imagining the voyage of immigrants into an unknown future.
Being a sailor and diver, he explored the seashores and the reefs of Florida Cays and the Caribbean with his sailboat “Calypso” for twenty years, and for another twenty years with is ketch “SeaLife.” Besides writing about his adventures, his hobby is photography.
In 2004 his boat was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan. After years of restoration he was ready to continue his sailing dream, when his wife quit sailing and he sadly sailed the boat home.

The Tunnel is the report of his last voyage. Fact and fiction merge here. The report is incredibly authentic, with a touch of mysticism and philosophy, and mixed with tongue-in-cheek humorous observations that flow through the author’s books and his life.
