-------------trade paperback, about 6w x 9h inches, a Very Good+ example, a bit of light rubbing, 221 pages, b&w photos and illustrations, ---"It began innocently enough ... in 1795 three boys discovered the top of an ancient shaft on uninhabited Oak Island in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The boys began to dig, and what they uncovered started the world's greatest and stangest treasure hunt. Two hundred years of courage, back-breaking effort, ingenuity, and engineering skills have so far failed to retrieve what is concealed there. --The Oak Island curse prophesies that the treasure will not be found until seven men are dead and the last oak has fallen. That last oak has already gone - and over the years, six treasure hunters have been killed. What can the treasure be? --Theories include Drake's plate and jewels, Captain Kidd's bloodstained pirate gold, an army payroll left there for safety by the French or British military engineers, priceless ancient manuscripts, the body of an Arif or other religious refugee leader, the lost treasure of the Templars, and part of the ancient, semi-legendary Acadian Treasure linked to the mystery of Glozel and Rennes-le-Chateau in France. --After years of research the authors have finally solved the sinister riddle of Oak Island, but their answer is challenging, controversial and disturbing. Something beyond price still lies waiting in the labyrinth."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
