★ 2021 Selah Award Winner Finalist for YA Literature ★

In the year 1717, Ricky embarks on an unexpected journey aboard a ship captained by Stede Bonnet, a wealthy sugar plantation owner who decides to abandon his comfortable life to set sail as a pirate. As they chart a course towards the North American coast, Bonnet's crew runs afoul of the British Royal Navy and is put to the test when they encounter a heavily-armed warship. Soon the crew is stealing, killing and plundering their way towards the Carolina's coast. Only when Bonnet's crew falls under the command of Blackbeard do the men truly learn what it means to become a pirate.

Blackbeard's leadership brings about a profound transformation in the men, revealing the depths of their own wicked capabilities and unveiling the harsh realities of life at sea, pillaging ships, and the consequences of serving under the most black-hearted pirate that ever sailed.

Under Blackbeard's tutelage, Bonnet's crew navigates the treacherous waters of the Caribbean and North Atlantic coast, facing adversaries, mutinies, and prizes for the taking. Soon Bonnet's crew hones their skills and become a formidable crew, forever marked by their association with the notorious commander of the fleet.

Based on the true events of Bonnet's adventures, Blackbeard the Pirate and Stede Bonnet's Fateful Clash blends adventure, humor, and historical accuracy into a lively pirate yarn.

Parents can trust the Caribbean Chronicles Series. There is no sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language, only a wee bit of humor. :)
