In 1871, on a small island in the middle of the Pacific, Captain John D. MacDonald and his crew found a hidden treasure. They buried it on the island, and for the next ninety years, no one knew where it was. In 2007, a team of treasure hunters found the buried treasure and began the arduous task of unearthing it. The island was not the only thing that had changed in ninety years. The world had become a different place, and the treasure was no longer just a piece of gold. It was a symbol of a different time, a time when the world was still young and full of promise.; 8vo; FSA.

Author Bio

John D. MacDonald

John D MacDonald (July 24, 1916- December 28, 1986) gained international acclaim as an author of short stories and crime and suspense novels. The native Floridian used his home state as a setting in many of his works. MacDonald is perhaps best known for his novel The Executioners, which inspired the film Cape Fear. His Travis McGee series also earned critical praise. MacDonald was awarded the American Book Award (later renamed the National Book Award) in 1980. Famed author Stephen King commended MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."
