Maps contain hidden clues which enable the reader to find long-missing pirate treasure. In the eighteenth century, during the golden age of the pirate, a family of mapmakers was entrusted with all the secrets of the greatest pirates. The McGee's were commissioned by buccaneers to draw maps to their buried treasure. But the mapmakers had a secret of their own; carefully hidden in their maps were clues leading others to the pirates loot! These maps have been lost for hundreds of years until now. The authors have recreated thirteen of the original McGee maps in this fantastic collection of treasures from the real pirates of the Caribbean. Readers can look for clues in the book and enter their answers to the riddle on the Simon & Schuster web site (www.simonandschuster.com/losttreasures) to claim their prize, the long-missing fourteenth map.
