A well-known book publisher Atlantic Monthly Fresh announced the release of the new “The Curse of Oak Island” book on 11th of December this year. The book’s official name is “The Curse of Oak Island: The Story of the World’s Longest Treasure Hunt” and it includes unique access to the Lagina brothers, who are also the main protagonists of the TV reality show with the same name by History Channel.
The author of the book is Randall Sullivan, a three-time Pulitzer nominee and ex-journalist in the Rolling Stone, the Washington Post, the Guardian and well-known magazines such as Esquire and Wired. He has already published two books, one about Michael Jackson, and the other about murders of American rap musicians Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. He realized Oak Island’s mysterious story might be a potential book material while he was writing an article about it for the Rolling Stone.
The publisher said that Sullivan has been researching this subject since 2004. and that he has inspected many sources nobody else has. Among those sources are also Rick and Marty Lagina, the famous brothers who have been digging all over the Island for years. A photo from 2017.that shows the brothers Lagina and the author Sullivan standing together confirms this statement.
The book covers the story about the potential treasure on the Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, from 1795. until today. The author made a successful effort to differentiate facts and fiction in all the information he collected about 220-year long treasure hunting in the Island’s well known “Money pit.” This pit has been a matter of public interest since its discovery, and not even extensive drilling, excavation with heavy machinery, diving and underwater filming succeeded to discover its mysteries. The new book will also include a report of the exclusive ongoing research projects of Lagina brothers. It will be hardcover, with a photo addition in color on 16 pages, and the price will be 23 dollars.
Rick and Marty Lagina have been filming their TV show for the History Channel since 2014. and already have finished five seasons. The premiere of the 6th season will be on 13th of November, and it will present the most extensive research that brothers have conducted. In the new season, in 2018., they have continued and extended the exploration of “Money pit,” and also started exploring some new areas, such as “Smith’s cove” and the swamp. Rick Lagina considers the Oak Island to be a matter of endless theoretical possibilities. His words have apparently found a partial fulfillment in the new season – in the trailer, it is shown to be found gold, an enigmatic underground hole, and an archaic structure, probably of Roman origin.
