The Curse of Oak Island by Randall Sullivan. 4/5
A solid and engaging history of Oak Island and the many and varied attempts to locate its “treasure,” Sullivan creates a chronological narrative of the treasure hunt, digging into primary sources to learn more about the treasure hunters, their beliefs about what the treasure was, how they went about trying to get it, and why they failed. Neither too detailed nor too broad in scope, Sullivan’s book will find readers among armchair explorers, historians, and conspiracy-theorists alike.
