⊕ Plot Summary : “In 1795, a youngster discovered a mysterious circular depression within the ground on Oak Island, in star Scotia, Canada, and enkindled rumors of buried treasure. Early excavators uncovered a clay-lined shaft containing layers of soil interspersed with picket platforms, however after they reached a depth of ninety feet, water poured into the shaft and created additional dig not possible.

Since then the mystery of Oak Island’s “Money Pit” has enthralled generations of treasure hunters, together with a Hub of the Universe insurance salesperson whose obsession ruined him; young Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and movie star Errol Flynn. confusing discoveries have enkindled explorers’ imaginations: a flat stone inscribed in code; a flood tunnel debilitating from a unreal beach; a torn scrap of parchment; stone markers forming an enormous cross. Swaths of the island were bulldozed searching for answers; excavation makes an attempt have claimed 2 lives. Theories abound on what’s hidden on Oak Island—pirates’ treasure, Marie Antoinette’s lost jewels, the Sangraal, proof that Sir Francis Bacon was verity author of Shakespeare’s plays—yet to the present day, the money Pit remains AN enigma.

The Curse of Oak Island could be a fascinating account of the strange, wealthy history of the island and also the bold treasure hunters WHO have driven themselves to economic ruin, psychotic breakdowns, and even death in pursuit of answers. And as Michigan brothers Marty and Rick Lagina become the newest to try to resolve the mystery, as documented on the History Channel’s program The Curse of Oak Island, Sullivan takes readers on to follow their quest primary.”

• Description : As sightings of the Virgin Mary have increased around the world over the last couple of decades, the Vatican has placed increased importance on a group of theologians, scientists and physicians whose job is to investigate them. These are the miracle detectives. Randall Sullivan's book follows these investigators on the trail of the Virgin Mary from the Vatican City in Rome to Oregon, Arizona, Venezuela, Switzerland, Ireland, Japan and Kenya. What he discovers is that every road and each mystery leads back to a tiny village in Bosnia. There, against the background of the ongoing war, eight young visionaries have been receiving what they say are the final apparitions of the Madonna. These appearances, which began in 1981 in a small village in the former Yugoslavia, have been more thoroughly examined than any purported miraculous phenomenon in history. To date, the results defy explanation. This is an amazing story of religious mysticism, as well as a testing of the author's own faith and beliefs. [...] by Publisher : 'Sphere'

• Description : The Oak Island mystery has been the world’s greatest and strangest treasure hunt, and after years of research the authors have finally solved the sinister with an answer that is challenging, controversial, and disturbing. 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 strangest treasure hunt but nobody knows what the treasure is. Two hundred years of courage, back-breaking effort, ingenuity, and engineering skills have failed to retrieve what is concealed there. Theories of what the treasure could be include Captain Kidd’s bloodstained pirate gold, an army payroll left by the French or British military engineers, priceless ancient manuscripts, the body of an Arif or other religious refugee leader, or the lost treasure of the Templars. 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 six treasure hunters have been killed. 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. [...] by Publisher : 'Dundurn'

• Description : In ‘I Succeeded Once’ – The Aboriginal Protectorate on the Mornington Peninsula, 1839-1840, Marie Fels makes the work of William Thomas accessible to anthropologists, archaeologists, historians and the descendants of the Aboriginal people he wrote about. More importantly, people who live, work, study, holiday or just have a general interest in the area from Melbourne to Point Nepean can learn about the original inhabitants who walked the land before it was cleared for agriculture and urban development. Of course, development of the Mornington Peninsula is ongoing and this book will help those involved in development or the management of Aboriginal cultural heritage to identify, document and protect Aboriginal places that may not be identifiable through archaeological investigations alone. Marie Fels supplements Thomas’s writings with other contemporary accounts and her exhaustive historical research sheds new light on critical events and the significant places of the Boon Wurrung people. Of particular importance is the critical review of information about the kidnapping of Boon Wurrung people from the Mornington Peninsula. [...] by Publisher : 'ANU E Press'

• Description : "A brilliant and readable book...a rich study of humankind's restless spirit." —Candice Millard, New York Times Book Review Greeted with coast-to-coast acclaim on publication, Fernández-Armesto's ambitious history of world exploration sets a new standard. Presenting the subject for the first time on a truly global scale, Fernández-Armesto tracks the pathfinders who, over the past five millennia, lay down the routes of contact that have drawn together the farthest reaches of the world. The Wall Street Journal calls it "impressive...a huge story [told] with gusto and panache." To the Washington Post, "Pathfinders is propelled by an Argonaut of an author, indefatigable and daring. It's a wild ride." And in a front-page review, the Seattle Times hails its "tart and elegant presentation...full of surprises. Fernández-Armesto's lively mind, pithy phrasing, and stunningly thorough and diverse knowledge are a constant pleasure." A plenitude of illustrations and maps in color and black and white augment this rich history. In Pathfinders we have a definitive treatment of a grand subject. [...] by Publisher : 'W. W.
