Summary

"Benito the pirate did exist, and while eluding the authorities allegedly buried some of his treasure either near Queenscliff in Southern Australia, or as rumoured, near the Franklin River in Gippsland. Search parties have spent much time and money searching for the treasure in these locations. This story details what could have happened to Benito and his crew .. but the treasure has still not been found, and could yet be discovered by clever students doing their own research and exploring likely locations."--Back cover.
