Written by bestselling author Robert Kurson, Pirate Hunters: Treasure Obsession and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship is the true story of the search for the Golden Fleece, a pirate ship sunk in 1686. As technology fails to provide the answers, present-day adventurers John Chatterton and John Mattera realise that to find the shop the must think the Golden Fleece’s devious pirate captain, Joseph Bannister. This is a tremendously gripping and hair-raising story of derring-do on the high seas that reads like fast paced fiction, but is a true story.
We’ve seen a great amount of support online, including 5 star reviews from What’s Good to Do and The Book Magnet. Jackie Law of Never Imitate says; “A boys own tale of adventure ... The tension throughout is palpable, the history enthralling. This is proof that, given a skilled narrator, some of the best tales can be true.”
