Details: The Virgins’ Treasure Isle.
The Virgins’ Treasure Isle is about pirates, Norman Island, buried treasure and the Treasure Caves.
It is a fascinating story of pirates against colonial masters when European nations were battling for supremacy of Caribbean islands and omnipotent Spain was robbing gold and jewels from American Indians in the name of Catholicism.
It was indeed a fateful day when a treasure laden Spanish Galleon came to grief during a terrifying hurricane and ended up in Ocracoke Inlet, the very same anchorage where the most notorious cutthroat in pirate history, ‘Blackbeard,’ met his end.
A vast treasure found its way to Norman Island and was buried there.
There is compelling evidence that Norman Island is the island of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
Perhaps what is astonishing, though, is that the real story is so evocative of 18th century piracy.
In the islands we hear many rumours of pirates and treasure, but nowhere is there as much eveidence of real skullduggery as in the Virgins’ Treasure Isle
