Sir Francis Drake had a wealth of titles to his name by the time he died at sea in the winter of 1596. To his English countrymen, he was a hero - an explorer who circumnavigated the globe. A sea captain who sunk dozens of ships in the Spanish Armada, and a Knight by Queen Elizabeth's own hand. But to his enemies; he was the worst sort of villain- a marauder that heartlessly destroyed their ports and colonies. A pirate who ceaselessly stole their gold, spices, and jewels. Whatever he was called, his infamous adventuring career came to an end when his body was tipped overboard off the coast of Panama over 400 years ago. But what if inside his coffin there was no body? What if instead there was a mysterious book that documented his last great adventure? What if you found this book?
