Q&A with Robert Kurson
Robert Kurson talked about his book, Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship, about the search for the Golden Fleece, which was sunk off the coast of the Dominican Republic in the 1680s. The ship’s captain, Joseph Bannister, was a well-respected English merchant captain before he stole the Golden Fleece and became a pirate. Mr. Kurson also spoke about his two previous books, Shadow Divers and Crashing Through, and the first article he wrote for Esquire magazine, about his favorite teacher in high school who ended up in prison. close
