Pirate Hunters

I could not put this book down! Utterly fascinating! Underwater archaeology and treasure hunting is right up my alley though, so it's no wonder I fell head over heels for this book. It reads like an adventure novel, which I suppose it is, a real life adventure. Two acclaimed divers and treasure hunters spend years trying to track the sunken "Golden Fleece" pirate ship using old hunches, historical references, and modern technology. They keep coming up empty handed but they don't let that deter them. Author, Robert Kurson, tells their story along with seventeenth century pirate, Joseph Barrister. Pirate stories and legends abound, as does other treasure hunts. Compelling and impossible to put down. What an adventure!!
