⊕ 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 : 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 : Making use of recent masculinity theories, Joseph A. Kestner sheds new light on Victorian and Edwardian adventure fiction. Beginning with works published in the 1880s, when writers like H. Rider Haggard took inspiration from the First Boer War and the Zulu War, Kestner engages tales involving initiation and rites of passage, experiences with the non-Western Other, colonial contexts, and sexual encounters. Canonical authors such as R.L. Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad, and Olive Schreiner are examined alongside popular writers like A.E.W. Mason, W.H. Hudson and John Buchan, providing an expansive picture of the crisis of masculinity that pervades adventure texts during the period. [...] by Publisher : 'Routledge'

• Description : “Like the druidic life force Jack taps, this hearty adventure, as personal as it is epic, will cradle readers in the ‘hollow of its hand’ (Booklist, starred review). Jack has caused an earthquake. He was trying to save his sister Lucy from being thrown down a well, but sometimes the magic doesn’t quite work out. Not only does Jack demolish a monastery, but Lucy is carried off by the Lady of the Lake, and Jack has to follow her through the Hollow Road, which lies underground. Aided by Pega, a slave, and the berserker Thorgil, Jack encounters hobgoblins, kelpies, yarthkins, and elves—not the enchanted sprites one would expect, but fallen angels who steal human children for pets. In the eighth century, the world is caught between belief in the Old Gods and Christianity, and what Jack and his companions do will decide the fate of both religions. From National Book Award winner Nancy Farmer, this second book in the Sea of Trolls trilogy brilliantly enlarges the world of the first story. Look for the conclusion in The Islands of the Blessed.
