ABOUT THE LIFE CHEST: PIRATES
In the Golden Age of Piracy, a priceless stash of treasure was hidden on a remote island in the Caribbean by some very clever—and ruthless—pirates. However, the secret to the location of the treasure was lost, and the pirates’ descendants despaired for centuries over the mystery, while the riches remained untouched.
Enter Josh and Bernie, more than 400 years later! They gather information and maybe a little bit of magic from Gramps’ life chest to spark the quest. With the help of Gasparo, the young man they met in Italy at the close of The Life Chest: Vikings, the cousins put their treasure hunting skills to use once again. They travel to the Bahamas, determined to discover the secret of Dead Man’s Cave and find the incredible treasure. Pirate tattoos, shark attacks, family secrets, false pride and true heroism—all are part of this latest saga in the Life Chest series of adventures.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Life chests are unique, beautiful pieces of heirloom-quality furniture. They are meant to hold and protect their owners’ precious keepsakes, and be handed down to future generations—treasured for both the memories they contain and the inspiration they foster.
The Life Chest Adventure Series consists of five novels featuring the adventures of two cousins named Josh and Bernie, as told by Josh in later years to his young granddaughter April. Josh and Bernie’s travels are inspired by the keepsakes they discover in their great-great-grandpa Kim’s life chest. Each keepsake has an intriguing mystery attached to it, prompting dangerous treasure hunts in faraway lands.
In the world of the novels, life chests are infused with magic. When a life chest has been filled with the treasured items and stories of a life well-lived, it is endowed with an ancient power and a potential for magic that Josh and Bernie discover over the course of the books.
Josh and Bernie travel to China, Africa, Europe, the Bahamas, India and Egypt. As they experience the wonders of the modern world, they discover the ancient world as well, through stories of historical characters such as 17th-century pirates and ancient Egyptian queens. The cousins—and the reader—also learn important lessons about family, integrity and legacy through the magic of the life chest.
