Description
The year is 1680, and once you sign on to the ship, there's no turning back. You'll need to learn new skills, like tying knots, rowing, and sword fighting. You'll be taught how to pump out the bilge and repair torn sails. But most of all, you'll want to capture ships and seize their treasure. Be ready to answer questions during your job interview at the end of the book. Answer most of them right, and you'll get the job
