Led by Captain Roger Redbeard (who doesn’t actually have a red beard) they need to build a boat, find some water and set sail. But things aren’t as simple as that. How things go right and then wrong several times over before they end up being very miraculously right and landing the gang with a very substantial amount of treasure is a rip roaring read.
