In this 196th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the tale of “The Drowned Buccaneer” about Wolfert Webber, whose story it was said by Louis Stevenson to be one of the finest treasure-seeking stories in the world.
Wolfert's ancestor, Cobus Webber, was one of the original settlers who came over from Holland and established his family on the East coast of USA in what is now New York.
Dreaming of treasure to ease a poor income, Cobus turns the soil on his land in the hope he will find a previously buried cache.
Lights are seen from time to time about the wood at night, and some say an old man in a red cap appears at the windows and that he is the ghost of the man who was buried in the bushes….
One day a secretive stranger comes to the inn and with his tongue loosened by liquor, eventually reveals he is seeking Captain Kidd’s treasure believed to have been buried somewhere along the North coast - which sets tongues a-wagging. Some say it a body was buried while others say it was treasure and yet others believe it to be an old wives' tale. Be that as it may, some do not believe it’s an old tale and the hunt is on!
But who is the Drowned Buccaneer? Well you’ll have to download and read the story to find the answer to the riddle!

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story. HINT - use Google maps.

An Introduction to Baba Indaba

Baba Indaba, pronounced Baaba Indaaba, lived in Africa a long-long time ago. Indeed, this story was first told by Baba Indaba to the British settlers over 250 years ago in a place on the South East Coast of Africa called Zululand, which is now in a country now called South Africa.

In turn the British settlers wrote these stories down and they were brought back to England on sailing ships. From England they were in turn spread to all corners of the old British Empire, and then to the world.

In olden times the Zulu’s did not have computers, or iPhones, or paper, or even pens and pencils. So, someone was assigned to be the Wenxoxi Indaba (Wensosi Indaaba) – the Storyteller. It was his, or her, job to memorise all the tribe’s history, stories and folklore, which had been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. So, from the time he was a young boy, Baba Indaba had been apprenticed to the tribe’s Wenxoxi Indaba to learn the stories. Every day the Wenxoxi Indaba would narrate the stories and Baba Indaba would have to recite the story back to the Wenxoxi Indaba, word for word. In this manner he learned the stories of the Zulu nation.
