Loved: Pirates!! What’s not to love? The historical accounts were so interesting! It didn’t hurt that I read part of it while on the deck of a cruise ship coming in to dock at the Bahamas. I’m pretty sure my friends had to physically hold me back from starting my own treasure hunt at the beach that day!
Learned: I originally got this book as a resource for my own WIP, which was set at sea and featured a sea-faring nation (not pirates!). It was a huge help in that sense, lots of details about the old Tall Ships they used to sail, nautical terms and great firsthand descriptions of sea battles.
