Publisher's Summary

Nova Scotia, 1952. Not exactly the place you'd expect to run into pirates. But an old mariner, his boat driven ashore in a gale, brings with him enough stories about buccaneers and their lore to make it seem that he must have had firsthand experience of the pirate life. But how is that possible? Captain Charles Johnson's uncanny knowledge of seamanship's dark side fuels the imagination of the young boy he befriends, setting the boy on his own journey of mysterious adventure.

A great Pirate tale for all ages!

What a wonderful book. I believe it was for children or teens, but read better than most adult literature. This way exceeded my expectations. This is a book that should have a sequel. A++

Loved every second!

Not big with reviews but this one deserved it. Great story, mixing several familiar piratical themes with an excellent mechanism to draw the reader/listener into the real histories therein. Performance was also spot on. Really enjoyed it. More please!

I really liked it.

Play frequent listener of spy and military stories I was not sure if I would actually like this. I got into the story fairly quickly and it did capture my imagination. It did not end as I anticipated, which I like. It was good for the long miles that I drive for work. I would recommend this story to young and old alike.

One of the good pirate stories.

I would give this a 4-1/2. It was Avery enjoyable story, although it didn’t make me as emotional as some five-star stories Have. I did really enjoy this. I am a real sucker for a good pirate story.

Enjoyable and informative

This story is a cameo for the life and attitudes of the institution of piracy and how it had been promoted by various government policies across time. The story itself is engaging with the “right.” Amount of magic, curiosity and intrigue. Good narrater except for saying boy instead of buoy. He pronounces all the other more difficult sailing words correctly

Great pirate yarn

Great YA story for all. The pirate tales are very accurate so full of good history for the whole family. Am an older adult and thoroughly enjoyed the tales, coming of age and life’s challenges. Narration was very good too.
