Same action-packed historical adventure previously published as La Vampirata

Los bucaneros y el Templo del Jaguar is an easy Spanish reader containing just 240 new vocabulary words and many English-Spanish cognates.

“A good story! At first I assigned myself a chapter or two at a time, but soon found myself reading on, really wanting to know what would happen next...I want know what happens to Sara and the emerald.” Dr. Stephen Krashen

Past tenses

Deep in the dense Colombian jungle a mysterious emerald has been plundered by an odd band of backstabbing pirates. An unlikely character, Sara Gomez, is thrust into the action. With fang-like teeth and inexplicable nocturnal walks, she is no longer safe in her vampire-frenzied community. But alas, in 1741 the high seas are just as dangerous as lingering with landlubbers.
