The compelling mystery on Nova Scotia's "Treasure Island"
For 200 years the underground tunnels on Oak Island have frustrated treasure seekers trying to recover valuables buried there.
The authors of this 1999 book, uncovered important new evidence about excavation of the underground workings and the offshore structures, including the British military involvement in the 1752 flood tunnel.
Harris and MacPhie, both experienced underground engineers, draw on the documentary record to present a compelling and historically accurate description of the two centuries of treasure hunting on Oak Island. Whatever the origins of the treasure, this new edition offers convincing evidence of the role of British officials in building the complex underground structure which has defeated treasure hunters at the site to this day.

"Oak Island and Its Lost Treasures is a highly readable book."

- Melvin Baker Canadian Book Review Annual

"If you want the nitty gritty of treasure hunting, with a wealth of facts on each of the dozen of shafts that have been sunk into the Swiss cheese of this island, you will be enthralled by Harris and MacPhie's lenghthier tome."

- Atlantic Books Today

"...the best single book I have yet read on the mystery of Oak Island."
"a must read."
