Their name came from the special wooden huts called boucans where they smoked their meat.

Buccaneers lived on the Caribbean island during the 17th century, they were very feared pirates. At first, they lived as hunters, and shot wild pigs with their long-barrelled muskets. Their name came from the special wooden huts called boucans where they smoked their meat. If you like pirate stories, read my book "The Voyage of Billy Buckins." Later this year, my second book in the Billy Buckins series (Billy Buckins and the pirates map) will be out. Please check out my website at www.TheVoyageOfBillyBuckins.com for more of my books.
