“The Strange Case of Jonathan Swift
and the Real Long John Silver”
Join Tim Farmer as he explores the centuries-old legend of Jonathan Swift’s silver and gold mines. Based upon Robert Prather’s book The Strange Case of Jonathan Swift and the Real Long John Silver, Farmer has created a thought-provoking documentary examining the mystery-shrouded legend and its possible parallel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, Treasure Island.
This provocative look into a fascinating segment of literary and American history will ready even the casual viewer to set sail for plunder and riches.
‘Who would have thought someday I would hold silver coinage in my hand from a cave in Kentucky. From Swift’s exact time period?!’
