The autobiography of Ed Hanley, Tales of Neptune’s Treasures, is currently available through Snowbird Press. For those of you who knew Ed or visited his “museum” in Sanibel, Florida you may have been lucky enough to hear stories of his adventures or perhaps learn from him about seashells, fossils and artifacts, many of which were available in his store. Sadly, Ed has passed away, but his knowledge and passion about learning and exploring are preserved in this book. Please refer to the “Press Coverage” for additional information about Ed.
This 380-page, soft-bound book includes 80 photographs of his exciting life and experiences scuba diving, shelling, fossiling and treasure hunting. His childhood and military experiences are recounted, as well as reflections on his family and people he had met in operating Neptune’s Treasures for over a quarter of a century. Included as an appendix to this book are all the articles he wrote concerning the various seashells to be found on Sanibel. These popular, illustrated articles appeared in the Sanibel-Captiva Shopper’s Guide for many years and now reprinted for the first time, in one collection.
