The Pirates of Buccaneer Bay is the blending of two stories and two generations, three hundred years apart. In the telling of pirate lore, true historic events, and modern technology, the author presents a novel of historic fiction accurate enough to use in the classroom as supplemental reading for history, science, and art.

As the story progresses, Brad notices bits of puzzling information that peaks his interest enough to solve some mysterious questions, blending the modern story with the one of the past. This fun story shows the reader how historic events can shape the future and how we can learn from the past.
