Island, Maryland and its rich heritage...nor just the War of 1812...nor just a present-day search of buried treasure from the famous Privateer and Captain of the original "Pride of Baltimore", Thomas Boyle. It's about all of them.
Did Privateer Boyle, as one of the "Nest of Pirates" from Baltimore, make a clandestine stop on historic Kent Island at the War's end? Did he bury something of real importance? Who exactly is searching for this possible treasure and why?
On the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, history and fiction can come alive in 2012 if the right characters of Kent Island are involved. They are indeed.
A portion of each book will be donated to The Kent Island Heritage Society.
