Rougher around the edges to be sure, Joe Digger Henderson is a man of quieter turn. Among his considerable abilities, the middle-aged Canadian adventurer, former rumrunner and suspected train robber boasts a remarkable facility for digging.No more unlikely partnership ever struck out for the Highlands of Scotland to hunt for Prince Charlies fabulous treasure. According to legend, the booty is snuggly interred in the Isle of Erran, and according to Lethaby, a ciphered map he recollects from childhood days at Dreams Castle might just pinpoint the precise location. All that remains is to make a suitable arrangement with Sir Charles Airdrie, the new owner of the castle and island, for the digging to begin.
