There was a long-held family story about an ancestor being a pirate. Chuck knew it was most likely just a tall tale, but a combination of desperation and vague hope kept him going. Additional clues from unlikely sources led him around the country. Along the way, he accidentally discovered a way to get visions of what his ancestors did and thought. That ability brought a promise of both wealth and love. There was also a problem. The visions he uses can kill him. What is the legacy Chuck LaGrange might find?
This book is both genealogy and fantasy. Many characters appearing in the tale are in the authors’s family tree. The last living person born LaGrange was the author’s mother, to whom the book was dedicated.
