On their way home, they meet a the future King of the Buccaneers and many of the scallywags of the Caribbean. They attempt to find their way home across several seas and the Atlantic Ocean to find "Home". On the way, the children learn about love and loss, of success and failure.

This project is near completion, the stumbling block now is to get the story published. The goal is to achieve the publishing of hard cover and paperback, put a distribution system in place via Amazon or a publisher or by trying to shout it out on a street corner somewhere. .
This story is one to bring tears to the eyes of mom's, make dad's cheer for sons and make the kids who read it dream to be courageous.
