Pirate's Passage

Pirate's Passage Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1952, fierce winds force a small boat into port. The boat's pilot, an eccentric old sea captain, takes residence at a small inn run by young Jim and his mother. The captain's presence soon becomes invaluable — and Jim and his mother will never be the same again. But who is this odd and mysterious man who tells such engrossing and detailed stories about pirates, whom he likes to call the Brotherhood of the Sea?

Part adventure story, part coming-of-age tale, and part history of the pirates, this brilliant and delightful book will especially appeal to readers ages ten to fourteen — and to anyone interested in the world of pirates. Pirate's Passage also features more than forty exquisite line drawings by the author, who is considered one of the foremost maritime artists working today.

Review:

"Teens may not pick this book up, but if someone introduces them to it, they will enjoy its mystery and magic." VOYA

Synopsis:

Part adventure, part coming-of-age tale, and part history, this novel offers a wondrous story of a mysterious sea captain who teaches a 12-year-old boy the real meaning of courage and the true history of pirates. "Wonderfully authentic . . . vividly brings to life the dark and violent world of the pirates of the Caribbean."--David Cordingly, author of "Under the Black Flag."

Synopsis:

Off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1952, fierce winds force a small boat into port. The boat's pilot, the eccentric Captain Charles Johnson, takes up residence at the small inn run by Jim and his mother. With each day, the captain's presence becomes more valuable to the family as they struggle to keep the inn open for business--and his background becomes more mysterious as Jim discovers how much he knows about the lives and battles of the old-time pirates. Who is this man whose compelling stories bring to life in such detail the day-to-day experience of sailing on a pirate ship? And how can he possibly know so much about how it feels to grow up among the Vikings; about how Francis Drake and Queen Elizabeth plotted their victories; about the loves of Grace O'Malley, the pirate queen of Ireland?
