Captained by English nobleman-turned-pirate Joseph Bannister, the Golden Fleece was a pirate ship sunk by the Royal Navy in 1686 and was rumoured to have taken with it many fortunes' worth of gold. Finding and identifying a pirate ship is the hardest thing to do under the sea, so when present-day adventurers John Chatterton and John Mattera hear of it, they know they have to risk everything to get their hands on it. In doing so they throw in their lot with legendary treasure hunter Tracy Bowden, who rejects sonar technology and searches only using maps and gut instinct. Their hunt takes them from a rumoured shipwreck site off the coast of the Dominican Republic, to Spain, New York and Florida. On the course of the journey the hunters realise that to find the ship they must think like the Golden Fleece's devious pirate captain. In bringing their tale to its thrilling conclusion, bestselling author Robert Kurson not only recreates the break-neck excitement of their search for the lost ship, but also vividly re-imagines life on the high seas in the Golden Age of Piracy. Featuring a daring cast of characters from past and present, Pirate Hunters is true-life high adventure at its finest, and a treat for pirate enthusiasts and modern-day exploration buffs alike.
