The Secret Treasures of Oak Island

by J.J. Pritchard

This young adult adventure is based on factual information about the 'money pit' on Oak Island and the attempts to retrieve the treasure.
Joel and Emma never expected to spend the summer digging in the Money Pit, seaching for untold millions in gold and jewels on famous Oak Island. But soon after their adventurer uncle Jake telephones them in Britsh Columbia to ask for their help with the excavations, they're in the air flying to the coast of Nova Scotia.
Exploring the island on their bikes, Joel and Emma find intriguing hints of the treasure's whereabouts: an ancient rock painting and cryptic Latin inscriptions. When a mysterious old man appears and gives them one final clue, they're sure they have all the pieces of the Oak Island puzzle. But as Jake's dig starts to fall apart, they have to race to put the pieces together in time.
Set against the background of one of the most famous treasure hunts of all time, The Secret Treasures of Oak Island is the action-packed story of two childrens' summer quest for pirate gold.
