Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship
Once again, it has been proven that working in a library is a very dangerous place for a reader. My list of books to read grows exponentially every day. Once in awhile a book crosses my path that sucks me in and won’t let go, a book that I want to spend a much time reading as possible and yet I don’t want it to end. This is the experience I read Jonathan Carroll.
It has been long time since I felt that way about non fiction.
Pirate Hunters by Robert Kurson is such a book:
From the first page I was hooked. Kurson tells the story of two obsessed men, John Mattera and John Chatterton as they search for the unfindable, a pirate ship that is unmistakably identified. In all the years of searching, just one ship has been conclusively discovered. And it isn’t the ship Chatterton and Mattera are searching for.
Personal stories of the two protagonists move this story forward. John Mattera’s life could very well have gone in a completely different direction as he became involved in the New York crime scene. I won’t say anymore for fear of giving away spoilers.
This book is unputdownable and you’ll be reading every chance you get. Find this book and like Mattera and Chatterton you’ll become obsessed with reading it. I did!
Until next time…
