I enjoyed this book on Oak Island. I have to admit, I'm an acorn - such a fan of the show. Hope they do find something. I like the details about the various digs William Crooker provides - more details than are on the show.

The book is over 20 years old. Fred Nolan has just revealed the news about the head stone (rock with skull carvings) and details about Nolan's cross. Loved learning more about the Nolan/Blankenship feud. I also like the author's ideas about what is really buried there on Oak

This book was truly fascinating and was able to completely capture my attention. Even after I finished reading a few chapters, I went on thinking and talking about the mystery of Oak Island to whoever would listen to me. The exciting part of Oak Island which is a tiny island on Nova Scotia's South Shore is that the mysterious maze of tunnels and shafts under the island are indeed man made and totally unexplainable. This is in addition to the strange markers, rocks and false beach found above gro ...more

A fascinating mystery that continues to this day. The author's theory of who dug the elaborate 120 ft deep pit on Oak Island is pretty persuasive. Who would spend so much time and effort, even designing flood tunnels to fill the pit, if there really wasn't treasure buried down there.

For years I've heard about people searching for treasure on Oak Island. I had no idea why people are so convinced that there must be something there. This book was highly illuminating - shafts more than 100 ft deep, an artificial beach, hidden water channels running from the shafts out to the ocean. Real facts and artifacts to support the belief that something must have been hidden on the island. The author did a good job of trying to remain objective about the various theories about what the tr ...more

I would guess that most people share a deep love of the thought of finding buried treasure. This book details the efforts at one site where the mystery around the location had tantalized treasure hunters for centuries. I want to like the tv shows about the search for buried treasure that sounds today, but I much prefer reading about the journey, defeats, and intrigue that surrounds the oak island treasure mystery.

Inspired by traveling to Nova Scotia for my brother's wedding. His in-laws are from this area and introduced us to this story and others from a cool area of the world. Thank you to an amazing family.
