Overview

Are Shakespeare’s lost manuscripts buried deep in the notorious Money Pit? Do booby traps conceal the Holy Grail of the Knights Templar or Blackbeard’s pirate loot? The mystery of Oak Island’s rumoured treasure has stumped explorers and researchers for over two hundred years. In this fascinating nonfiction account, librarian Joann Hamilton-Barry introduces young readers to the treasures rumoured to be hidden on Nova Scotia’s famous question mark-shaped island and the curious adventurers who sought it out.

With over 50 maps, photographs, and artefacts, highlighted by educational sidebars, this accessible, entertaining book takes readers from the island’s first treasure hunters to present-day adventurers, and shares tales of pirate gold, mysterious messages, and the famous Oak Island curse.
