Description

Today we travel to one of the most remote national historic units in the world to solve a mystery, and maybe get rich in the process. When a notorious pirate named Captain Gregory Dwargstof sought out the distant Aleutian Island of Adak to stash his stolen gold, he didn’t count on dying before he could get back to it. Now, over 130 years later, a team is put together to uncover the millions of dollars’ worth of gold not to hoard for themselves, but to pay forward to a community in need.
