The Mysteries of Bouchard's Treasure TM
It was a dark and stormy night in 1818. The wind howled and the rain beat down on the coast of California. In the harbor, a ship was anchored. The ship was called the Santa Rosa, and it was the flagship of the pirate Hippolyte de Bouchard.
Bouchard was a French pirate who had been terrorizing the Spanish for years. He had captured ships, stolen treasure, and even burned towns to the ground. But now, he was in trouble. The Spanish had caught him, and he was being held prisoner in the Presidio at Monterey.
