"Platt weaves vast quantities of nautical information into a text as lively as it is absorbing." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
Curious about life on a pirate ship? Check out PIRATE DIARY: THE JOURNAL OF JAKE CARPENTER, an account of adventure on the high seas as told by a feisty nine-year-old carpenter’s apprentice, circa 1716.

Ships ahoy!
