Summary

Summary

Obsessed by a boyhood dream of lost pirate treasure, Barry Clifford launched a search for the pirate ship Whydah which supposedly was wrecked on the coast of Cape Cod. He soon realized he had taken on a duanting task which had defeated many before him.

Effortlessly weaving pirate Black Sam Bellamy's history with his own story, Clifford tells a story of pursuit and perseverance, one that shows our inseperable link to the stories of our childhood as well as our connections to the historic past.
