Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

Adventure? Yes, more than one! Derring-do? Yes! Storms? Sea monsters? Rival pirates? Of course! Cameos by frequently anachronistic historical figures?  You betcha! All that and more.

Not since Moby-Dick. . . . No, not since Treasure Island. . . . Actually, not since Jonah and the Whale has there been a group of seafarers  to rival The Pirates!, and their leader, the greatest ocean-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, who, although he lives for months at a time on the bounding main somehow manages to keep his beard silky and in good condition.




About the Author
Gideon Defoe was born in 1975 and lives in London. Because of all the usual politics and petty jealousies rife throughout the literary world, neither of his previous books, "The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists "nor" The Pirates! In an Adventure with Ahab," has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
