Do ruins in a Nova Scotia village conceal a dramatic and romantic chapter of history? Is the famous and mysterious 'Money Pit' on Oak Island in Mahone Bay connected with a desperate and courageous attemp to save the Holy Grail? Was Samuel de Champlain a secret agent for the Grail Dynasty, and did his ma ps and journals purposefully obscure the location of the Grail's secret refuge in Acadia? And, just before Nova Scotia was attacked by Sedgewick in 1654, was the Holy Grail again transported to a new haven - Montreal, founded by a mysterious se c r e t society called the Companie du Saint-Sacrement? (This book) offers fascinating answers to these questions, and presents an interpretation of early Canadian history that you may prefer to doubt - but will not be able to forget!"
