OAK ISLAND
An immense treasure lies buried deep within a tiny island on Canada’s East Coast … Or so the story goes. For more than two hundred years, treasure-hunters have come to Oak Island in search of riches and glory. Fired by the discovery of man-made underground shafts, tunnels and passageways, men have pitted their own ingenuity, money, and muscle against the island. But always, the island has sent them away, empty-handed.
Bob Restall was sure that he could succeed where others had failed. He moved his wife, Mildred, their teenage son, Bobby, and their younger son, Ricky, to Oak Island, where, for nearly six years the family lived a Spartan life, channeling their energies into a persistent drive to unravel the mystery of Oak Island and claim the treasure. But, then one August day, the Restall hunt for buried treasure came to a sudden and tragic end. Four men lay dead.

Biography
Publications: Lee Lamb is the daughter of Mildred and Bob Restall. She authored Oak Island Obsession: The Restall Story (Dundurn, 2006), to honour her parents, and to set the record straight about what had occurred during the Restall hunt for treasure on Oak Island. Lee's book includes a description of Restall family life before Oak Island, the realities they encountered in their Oak Island search for treasure, and events that transpired after the accident. The book contains letters, journals and essays written by each family member, as well as numerous original photographs, sketches and maps.
Oak Island Family: The Restall Hunt for Buried Treasure (Dundurn, 2012), Lee's second book, was written for teens, young adults, and adults who are unfamiliar with the history of Oak Island. It guides the reader through the discoveries made on Oak Island starting in 1795. These discoveries are astounding and have been seen by treasure-hunters, historians and fans as proofs that an immense treasure lay within Oak Island. Oak Island Family also includes a retelling of the Restall family's experiences on the Island in a shortened version, suitable for teens. This book includes family anecdotes and around fifty sketches, maps and photos, not published in “O. I. Obsession”.
Education: About five years after the accident on Oak Island, Lee was given the opportunity to attend university. Until then, she had been a grade ten dropout. At McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Bachelor of Social Work. Ten years later she added a two-year diploma in Fashion Arts (Sheridan College, Oakville, Ontario). Approximately ten years after that, Lee earned a Bachelor of Education degree and a Master of Education at the University of Toronto OISE, Toronto, Ontario.
Learning for its own sake has become one of Lee’s favorite activities. Acquiring an education that grants access to rewarding careers has been equally prized. Education has allowed Lee to spend many years of her life working with people. She enjoyed years as a hospital social worker and even more years as a high school teacher, first locally, and then in northern fly-in Cree communities. She is sincerely grateful for those experiences.
General:
Lee Lamb lives in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Her friends and family members are found

throughout Canada and the United States.
