Summary
The crew of the Betsey didn't realize that not all of them would make it home to Maine from Cuba... What happened to the 1845 Expedition to the Arctic? Did Captain Franklin and his men perish in the cold, or did they resort to horrible measures to stay alive?... Mary Read didn't let being a woman keep her from becoming one of the most feared crew members aboard a pirate ship... Two ships wreck on the same small island at the same time. Can the crews keep from being eaten by the Wild Men?... He was shorter than most men and was missing an arm, but that didn't prevent Barbarossa from being the most feared pirate in the Mediterranean
