About this title

Synopsis:

Rick and his sister travel to Emerald Isle, near Morehead City, NC, to stay at their grandparents cottage on the beach. One day Rick spots a bottle left by the receding tide. He and his grandfather, PopPop, retrieve the bottle and discover that it contains a map, signed by none other than Edward Teach, the famous pirate, better known as Blackbeard. The next day PopPop and Rick sail in their little boat to nearby Long Island, follow the map and dig for the treasure. There, beneath the circle of seashells, Rick uncovers a small, old treasure chest. They sail back to the beach cottage and when they pry open the chest, Rick discovers that it is filled with all kinds of coins and jewelry. He gives the jewelry to his sister Jacquie but keeps the treasure coins for himself. Several years later, back home in Maryland, Rick makes an interesting discovery which involves President's Day and a Lincoln penny! This is a true story and includes some actual snapshots of Rick, his sister Jacquie and PopPop during those days at the beach. The story is written by Rick's grandmother, Mimi, and includes an Epilogue which concludes the story and includes some interesting facts about the real "Blackbeard" the Pirate and his ship, the "Queen Anne's Revenge." The book is beautifully illustrated in soft pastels. Author: Anita Murray, a graduate of Queens College CUNY, is a retired elementary school principal. She and PopPop still enjoy vacationing at the beach house with their three grandchildren. This is her first book. Illustrator: Martha J. Miller has a fine arts degree from Syracuse University and has been a friend of the Murrays for many years. This is her first effort at book illustration.
