Treasure was found on Oak Island, Nova Scotia, deep below the ground in 1795--so begins Braden Wright's slow and steady narration. As is so common in nonfiction, Wright uses a minimal shifts in tone and pacing to differentiate letters and news accounts from dialogue and narrative. Wright becomes audibly emotional and engaged with the treasure hunt and the lives of treasure-burying pirates, including Captain Kidd, Morgan, and even Peter Easton. Listeners will hear about a continuous string of treasure hunters and their numerous expeditions, as well as excavation techniques. Flooding tunnels, collapsing shafts, empty promises, and squandered fortunes are described in minute detail as Wright captures the thrill of searching for an elusive treasure.
