Meanwhile, hundreds of years in the future, Jim Monroe—Thomas’ descendant—is also in desperate need of that treasure, or he and his mother will lose the family land.

From the Book
If these were pirates—and they were—and this was a map—and it was—then there was likely a treasure to be had. But O’Conner didn’t seem to be sure that this was a treasure. Of course, that may just have been for show so that his two companions did not revolt. If they knew that a vast treasure was at stake, then they would no doubt panic at the prospect of crossing someone like John James. So there probably was a treasure, and then Thomas stopped walking for a moment in his excitement—he could take care of his mother. The only questions were how great the treasure was, and how to decipher the map. –from the book
