The Lost Treasure of Blackbeard

David Morton

An ordinary family are making a new start in life. Dad has a new job in Portsmouth Dockyard, which means his wife and two sons have to endure an apprehensive relocation and have a change of friends and lifestyle to experience as they adapt to life in their new home, Portsmouth. Their adventures take us through a swashbuckling pirate journey of treasure maps and shipwrecks marooned on a desert island from the early 1700s. We witness the finale of Lord Nelson's illustrious life and the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

Take a deep breath, as the voyage really begins when the boys explore their new home and the old parts of the city of Portsmouth, which is steeped in maritime history. They befriend a knowledgeable old sea dog who helps them reach a fantastic conclusion that only dreams are made of...
