Replete with the tales of swashbuckling pirates guarding their last stolen treasure, "Blackbeard the Pirate," represents just one of the extraordinary tales that Alpheus Chewning documents in his latest book. By delving into the creepy, unexplored avenues of Virginia Beach's past, Chewning entrances the reader with the spectral details of Blackbeard's buried treasure, a deadly stretch of road inexplicably responsible for eighty-nine fatalities in the past thirty years and the untimely death of a military wife, devilishly titled "Don't Make Mom Mad"- just to name a few.
