Pieces of Eight

When Jack O'Connor learns that the piece of eight he found diving is a clue to sunken pirate treasure, he hopes it will be the answer to all his financial worries. The problem is, there are two other clues to the treasure's whereabouts. Portia Pennington and Sandy Sequoia -- two young women with their own dark secrets -- each holds one of the other clues necessary to locate the hoard of lost doubloons. Jack unites the three misfit adventurers; and in defiance of the pirate's curse, they go in search of the treasure. But they will have to learn to trust one another and work together if they expect to find the gold and survive the hurricane of the century -- a breeze compared to opening their hearts to each other.

Whiskers and the Pieces of Eight

Pirates may not usually plunder museums for treasure but that is exactly what is going to happen in this pirate tale. When an ancient coin is delivered to Inverness Museum and lands in Kate the Curator's hand, it activates the drop of pirate blood running through her veins. Kate begins turning into Cap'n Kate, assisted by the increasingly sinister Needles, who comes to life from one of the museum's paintings. Who can stop the Jacobite jewels, Viking valuables and other wonderful treasures from being loaded onto a ghostly pirate ship? The only hope seems to lie with Whiskers, the water vole, who comes to life from the Freshwater Display, but he is being hunted by Talons, the tawny owl. Detailed black and white illustrations bring the story to life. Glossary included to explain tricky words.

But Kip Wagner's imagination was fired, and with the help of his friend and physician, Dr. Kelso, he began the long research and search operations that are described in this engrossing book.

Pieces of Eight

Twentieth-century sleuthing methods are linked with the romance and mystery of the past in this true story of a treasure hunt that has yielded millions. Over 250 years ago a Spanish treasure armada was wrecked on the Florida reefs, and ten richly laden vessels were sunk. In time they were forgotten. In the l 940's Kip Wagner, then a Florida construction man, picked up the first clues to the location of the wrecked ships. They were scarce: occasional blackened silver coins discovered here and there along the beach. But Kip Wagner's imagination was fired, and with the help of his friend and physician, Dr. Kelso, he began the long research and search operations that are described in this engrossing book. They were joined by a small group of other men and formed the Real Eight Corporationappropriately named for the Spanish ocho reales, or piece of eight. Most of the team had other jobs, some of them at nearby Cape Kennedy, and could hunt treasure only in their spare time. But they persisted. The work was arduous, at times dangerous. There were setbacks, disappointments, grueling underwater ordeals. But in time the rewards were sensational -thousands of silver pieces of eight and golden doubloons, silver bars and bullion, gold ingots, gold rings and pendants, priceless Chinese porcelain, a gold necklace appraised by a museum at $50,000, three million dollars in treasure recovered so far by this band of hard-working, adventurous, persistent men.

Not illustrated. 1853 edition. Excerpt: ...that the motive which induced him to burn the stacks was in order that he might make corn dear, and so raise wages; and what then, he would ask, was the d-ifference in principle? (Hear, hear.) Where was the difference between those who made corn dear by artificial means, and Lankester, who took his own mode of making it dear? He much feared that half those who supported the present Corn Laws would stand less acquitted in the eyes of heaven than James Laukester, the unfortunate man who set fire to those stacks. (Hear, hear.) He repeated, that men who knew what they were doing, and notwithstanding that knowledge supported the Corn Laws for their own selfish purposes, were more to blame than the wretch who burned that com, if in doing so he did not know how really guilty he was in the sight of heaven." Mr. Fox delivered a brilliant address, continued to a late period of the evening, which was principally a recital of the effects everywhere produced, from successive ministries down to the poorest classes of the community, by the free-trade agitation. He said: --l " Rick-burning was only Richmondism in theory. (Immense cheering.) There never was a parallel more complete than that between the Richmondites and rick-burning; for if one wantonly destroyed property so did the other; if one endangered human life, so did the other endanger it wholesale; if in the rick-burner's case the innocent suffered, who suffered in the other case? The innocent and the helpless, who suffered more the more helpless they were. If one destroyed the good gifts of heaven to man, so did the other; and probably alarger quantity of corn was destroyed in the course of the year by rotting in bond than had ever been destroyed by rick-burners, and at last...
