This 1,180-page monster is essentially the new and improved version of my 2016 book 'Oak Island'. It includes information on the history of the Oak Island treasure hunt; a plot summary and analysis for each episode of 'The Curse of Oak Island' from Seasons 1 through 6; and descriptions of twelve different theories regarding the nature of the Oak Island treasure and the identity of those who buried it.

At the back of the book is a comprehensive index filled with just about every name, artifact, and location to ever be associated with the Oak Island mystery- a tool which will enable you quickly and easily brush up on any topic that The Curse of Oak Island fails to flesh out in its infamous flashback sequences.

Whether you choose to use this book as a reference guide or read it from cover to cover, I hope that you enjoy yourself and learn something new in the process. Happy reading!
