Pp (10), 1-145, (5). 8vo, reddish-brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. A novel for young people about the Oak Island mystery. Thistale is told by a young English boy, Robin. "The mystery of buried treasur e on Oak Island, off the south shore of Nova Scotia, has puzzled and fascinated treasure hunters as well as historians and tourists for more than 180 years. First discovered in 1795, the main shaft, or the 'Money Pit' as it came to be known, has persistently foiled all those who have come to exploreits secrets. Investigation has revealed a tunnel connected to beach drains , remnants of a cofferdam and other evidence that extensive and complex works were once built on the island. Although explorations are still going on today, no one has been successful in solving the island's mystery. What is buried on Oak Island, who put it there, and how was it done? The Hand of Robin Squires offers the reader an exciting story and a possible explanation of the island's secret. The tale is told by Robin Squires, a young boy growing up in England. His father, an inventor and surveyor, is persuaded by Robin's Uncle Edward to go to America on a mysterious expedition. When he returns to England for the winter he tells Robin that he has spent the summer on an island off the coast of North America, working on Edward's project. But he refuses to tell more. Before he can return with Edward to America to complete the project, Robin's father dies. Robin, lured by his eagerness tofind out what his father had been working on and by his desire to go to Am erica, decides to join his uncle. On the voyage he discovers his uncle is aruthless pirate and that his own purpose on the voyage is to complete the ingenious engineering scheme his father had designed to bury Edward's stolen treasure. On his arrival in the New World, Robin makes friends with Actaudin, an independent and adventurous young Micmac Indian. But Edward takes Actaudin prisoner and forces him to work on the excavation. Robin soon realizes that his uncle has no intention of leaving any survivors to reveal where his treasure is hidden. A story of adventure and challenge, of friendshipand courage, The Hand of Robin Squires will fascinate every young reader. " - from the dj flaps. Very good in lightly spotted dustjacket. 30.00
