)-- This series begins in 1777 when the American colonies are fighting for independence from Britain. Hannah Pritchard is the only member of her family to escape an attack on her family’s farm. Disguised as a boy, she signs on as a cabin boy on an American privateer ship. When the ship is attacked by the British, Hannah and her friends escape with a chest of treasure that they bury on an island before they are captured the following day. After months in captivity they manage to escape and with the help of friends they capture another British ship and sail to Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
In this third and final book, "Captain Hannah Pritchard: The Hunt for Pirate Gold," the year is 1780 and Hannah and her friends continue on their exciting sea voyages. They must complete some important missions for the Continental navy and outsmart an enemy pirate in a race to bring home the buried treasure.
