This vivid picture book takes readers through the swashbuckling tale of the Whydah. One of the most advanced sailing ships of the early 18th century when she first set sail from London in late 1716, this vessel brought adventure, wealth, and doom to all who sailed on her.


Commissioned as a slave ship, the Whydah would make only one such voyage before being captured by pirates.The English flag was replaced by the Jolly Roger, for only a short time before the Wydah sank off Cape Cod during one of the worst nor'easters ever recorded. More than 250 years later and after years of research and planning, underwater explorer Barry Clifford discovered the wreckage—the only authenticated pirate ship ever.
