Publisher's Description

Adventure! History! Pirate Diary reveals life on the high seas in the eighteenth century—through the eyes of a nine-year-old boy.

Curious about life on a pirate ship? Climb aboard this account of adventure on the high seas as told by a feisty nine-year-old carpenter's apprentice, circa 1716. Historically accurate illustrations of ship and crew, a map of Jake's travels, and a detailed glossary and index vividly reveal the fascinating — and harsh —-life of a pirate in the eighteenth century. Ships ahoy!
