Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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?

Synopsis:

This winner of the Canadas 2006 General Governors Literacy Award for Childrens Fiction is now available in paperback. Awondrous adventure in the tradition of "Treasure Island," the book stars a mysterious sea captain who teaches 12-year-old Jim the real meaning of courage--and the true and glorious history of the pirates.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, a wondrous adventure in the tradition of Treasure Island, with a mysterious sea captain who teaches twelve-year old Jim the real meaning of courage - and the true and glorious history of the pirates, for ages 12 and up.
