On this here ship, we follow the pirate's code: No frolikin' in the bilges, no songs about scurvy, and most important, each buccaneer must keep his pistol ready for action at all times. Break the code, me bucko, and you'll be forced to walk the plank.
"This delightful book" for young readers "is full of creative activities, interspersed with plenty of fascinating historical facts" (School Library Journal).
Jamaica Rose, aka Christine Markel Lampe, was "kidnapped" by pirates in 1988 when a friend invited her on a pirate cruise. She met her husband, Captain Michael MacLeod aka Michael Lampe, on that first voyage, and they've been pursuing the piratical life ever since. They publish No Quarter Given, a newsletter on all things pirate, and are founding members of the Port Royal Privateers. They live in Southern California.
