One of 6 copies of Pirate Hunters by Robert Kurson!

This is the gripping true story of bitter rivalries on the high seas, a brilliant 17th Century pirate captain, and the two adventurous divers determined to find his treasure.
Captained by English nobleman-turned-pirate Joseph Bannister, the Golden Fleece was a pirate ship sunk by the Royal Navy in 1686 taking with it many fortunes’ worth of gold. 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.
