Abstract

This novel follows the adventures of 15-year-old Jack, a descendant of the legendary pirate Calico Jack Rackham. After he discovers the diary of one of his ancestor's shipmates while on vacation in St. Augustine, he enlists the help of his friend Kai to track down the treasure. Solomon Cresson's journal tells of a treasure he'd buried in 1696, on Rattlesnake Island near Matanzas Inlet. But more than treasure awaits Jack and Kai, both long-dead pirates and something ghostly and menacing haunt the treasure. Will greed or friendship win in the end?

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include St. Augustine Beach, the St. Augustine Municipal Marina, the Castillo de San Marcos, Rattlesnake Island, and the Matanzas Inlet.
