In 1720, Calico Jack, Anne Bonny and Mary Read stole the William, a 12 ton sloop. I know. I was there. - Ricky

Last winter Ricky Bradshaw was just another gangly freshman hoping to fit in -- or at least not get picked on -- and maybe catch the attention of Becky Nance, a girl in his biology class. Except Ricky suffers from a type of epilepsy called absence seizures. Which means sometimes Ricky "zones out" in class. If you've never heard of absence seizures, that's okay. A lot of people haven't. Ricky's teachers are a lot of these people

And that's what happens while Ricky and his parents visit Coffin Cay, a small island off Hispaniola -- he had an episode and slipped into a trance. These things happen: or at least they did in the Bible. "While they were making preparations, Peter fell into a trance and he saw the sky opened up. An object like a great sheet came down." Acts 10:9-10 "I, Paul, was praying at the temple and fell into a trance. I saw the Lord speaking to me." Acts 22:17-18. Not saying Ricky has supernatural powers like Peter, Paul, and Mary, but when he "zones out" Ricky slips back in time to pirate land.

So . . . one moment Ricky was helping his parents search for a rumored treasure in a cave and the next he was sailing around the Spanish Main with Calico Jack, Scary Mary Read, and Anne Bonny. Which, in a way, marked the end of Calico Jack and his crew of cutthroat pirates.

The End of Calico Jack is a fictional retelling of the pirate escapades of Calico Jack, Ann Bonny, and Mary Read. The story is based on historical research, though some liberties have been taken in the telling of the story. The book includes a REAL PIRATE MAP of Calico Jack's sailing routes and the ports he visited.
