Pirates, buried maps and hidden treasure! Set on the glorious Chesapeake Bay during the third year of the reign of good Queen Anne (c. 1705), this swashbuckling novel depicts the conflict of righteous behavior and foolishness with the outcome being a matter of life or death. The story follows the service of fifteen-year-old Thomas Ingle on the Prudent Hannah under the honorable Captain Monroe, and then their unfortunate tour on the Lady Constance. Treasure, financial hardship, and pirate mystique all add to a cleverly woven tale of uncommon honor in the face of insidious treachery that stretches from the days of cutlasses and muskets to our own.
