The Flying Dutchman was wrecked off the coast of South America - its crew trapped in an eternity of misery. Only Ben and his dog, Ned escaped to wander the world, never ageing, moving on to new missions by the toll of the ship's bell. However, now the evil Captain Vanderdecken wants them back.

Brian Jacques was both a master storyteller and a jack-of-all-trades. He lived the life of a sailor, actor, stand-up comedian, radio host, bobby, even a bus driver. He was the recipient of an honorary doctorate in literature from the University of Liverpool and a New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty-five books for younger readers, including the wildly popular Redwall series. Dr. Jacques was a lifelong resident of Liverpool, England.From AudioFile:
In this sequel to CASTAWAYS OF THE FLYING DUTCHMAN, we find the eternally young Ben and his faithful dog, Ned, cavorting with pirates in the Caribbean and taking on a tribe in the Pyrenees that is well-versed in the black arts. Brian Jacques and his cast do an exceptional job bringing this tale to life. The characterizations are well complemented by Jacques's winsome brogue. The other characters are performed with great expression and energy, as well. There is also music for transitions between chapters and sides, as well as a good number of songs that are quite delightful.
