Sir Francis Drake by Pat Croce
Follow Sir Francis Drake’s amazing journey from humble sailor to fame and fortune, from mere mate to beloved admiral, from pirate to privateer, from a boy with a dream to a knight kneeling at the foot of Queen Elizabeth. Renowned pirate expert, Pat Croce, brings Drake’s adventure to life, tracing the pirate’s legendary voyage around the world where no Englishman had ever dared to his reign of terror on Spain's New World empire. It reads like action-packed fiction, but it's true!
Sir Francis Drake is the second of Croce's acclaimed illustrated pirate series, which began with the notorious Blackbeard. Drake is his favorite rogue; in 2011, Croce led a maritime expedition to Portobello, Panama, where it is believed the explorers found the scuttled remains of Drake's ships, Elizabeth and Delight.
