Summary
"'Pirate Hunters' is a gripping account of two courageous divers' quest to uncover the shipwrecked vessel of Joseph Bannister, one of history's most infamous pirates"--
Summary
Ahoy, there! Looking for adventure and swashbuckling tales of derring-do? Interested in pirates and the modern mateys who seek long-lost ships and loot buried under ocean waves? If the answer's yes, then take the gripping Pirate Hunters prisoner (for a week or so, anyway) and learn about dedicated treasure hunters John Mattera and John Chatterton as well as legendary, technology-eschewing hunter Tracy Bowden. Robert Kurson (author of Shadow Divers, which also features Chatterton) compellingly traces the men's high-stakes quest to find the Golden Fleece, "the greatest pirate ship that had ever sailed," which belonged to notorious English sea captain-turned-pirate Joseph Bannister. -- Description by Dawn Towery
