Megan McCormick sets out in the footsteps of famous mariners and renegades of the Caribbean to learn firsthand about 250 years of perilous treasure hunting and brutal competition among the Spanish, English, Dutch, French, and Portuguese. These pirates were vying for gold, silver, and other riches. Galleons were sunk, thousands were killed, and, for centuries after the New World was discovered in 1492, it was the pirates who ruled the waves. Megan explores the legend and lore to find out how far they went to lay their hands on these treasures, how hard they were to keep, and what still remains from that extraordinary era.
