The story of Thomas Tew is best told somewhere in the realm between probable and plausible. Hard facts about the life of Rhode Island's own pirate are few and far between. Yet, through careful examination of contemporary court records, testimonies, and eyewitness accounts, along with historically accepted secondary sources, a truthful rendering of Tew's exploits comes to life in A Gold Chain, a Wooden Leg, and a Treasure Chest. With detailed analysis of the historiography of Thomas Tew, no single volume has presented a more accurate or comprehensive look at one of the most enigmatic freebooters in the Golden Age of Piracy.

'What is the Lost Treasure which you seek?' When Nick Hollister saw these brilliantly glowing words appear in The Book of Lost Treasures, he thought his luck had finally changed. After losing his job, his girlfriend, and being beaten up by archrival Carter Cannon in the space of mere hours, the chronically unemployed and underachieving Nick had reached a new low, even for him. When a chance encounter with the eccentric Hank Harper, the new owner of an antique store in town, leads to the purchase of a mysterious painting, Nick soon discovers an equally mysterious book hidden within the frame of the painting. The book proves to be able to produce maps revealing the location of long lost treasures. In the course of forming The Treasure Hunt Club with four close friends, Nick meets and falls in love with Abby Summers. Soon, The Book of Lost Treasures leads Nick, Abby, and the other club members on a cross-country trek from tiny D'Lo, Mississippi, to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Arlington, Virginia, as it reveals the locations of many lost treasures, including a stolen shipment of Union gold from the Civil War era. Although these discoveries make Nick and the other club members wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, the sudden riches bring with them their own set of problems, and Nick learns ownership of The Book of Lost Treasures comes with a heavy price. In The Treasure Hunt Club, author Mike Clifton takes readers on an exciting journey of adventure filled with love, loss, and self-discovery.

Following author Tobias Wabbel’s research and investigation throughout Europe, this book solves the mystery of the treasure of the Knights Templar. The most up-to-date archeological and historical information is discussed, from the history of the Knights Templar and the history of the Israelites and the Ark of the Covenant, to medieval literature and Gothic cathedral architecture. Disproving common theories—the Knights Templar never guarded the pilgrimage ways in Palestine, there is no Priory of Sion, there is no bloodline from Jesus to the present day, and there is no authentic Shroud of Turin—the book also proves the existence of the sacred Ark of the Covenant, also known as the treasure of the Knights Templar, which is still hidden in France. Wabbel researched iconography in the architecture of cathedrals and chapels, and found more evidence in texts and inscriptions that led to his theory on the location of the Templar treasure. Both a travel guide to the secrets of the treasure of the Knights Templar and a fascinating read, this book will shake commonly held beliefs on this interconnected history and renew the interest in it.

Hardly anyone attends St Martin's Church, Kengrave Square, in West London, and it's very nearly falling down. But when news gets out that it's to be closed, and possibly sold, there's a significant flurry of interest. The site is worth millions. Aziz Developments are after it, and so is the Community of Investors for Jesus - a curious American group of televangelists. Enter Kengrave Square resident, the Honourable Mrs Monica Lodey, whose grandfather built the church. The venerable Mrs Lodey is determined to save St Martin's. She's not only rich but she can also exert huge influence: her brother is Chairman of Grenwood, Phipps, the merchant bankers, where Mark Treasure is Chief Executive. When the vicar's wife launches a fund to repair St Martin's, there's a rowdy parish meeting where Treasure's actress wife Molly is the first to promise money. Treasure hopes that can be the extent of his involvement. But when a sudden death follows, spawning more dramatic events, both he and Molly find themselves gradually drawn into yet another investigation, and this time very close to home. As cleverly plotted and wryly funny as ever, Holy Treasure! is another thrilling escapade from fiction's best banker-detective.

The brief Russian presence in California yielded some of the earliest ethnography of Native Californians and some of the best collections of their material culture. Unstudied by western scholars because of their being housed in Russian museums, they are presented here for the first time in an English language volume. Descriptions of early nineteenth-century travelers such as von Wrangel and Voznesenskii are followed by a catalog of objects ranging from hunting weapons to household objects to ritual dress to musical instruments, games, and gift objects. This catalog of objects includes over 150 images, many in full color. An essential volume for those interested in the ethnology, archaeology, art, and cultures of Native Californians.
