PIRATES AHOY! by Charles Driscoll


Email this review


An old pushover for pirates' yarns with hearty enthusiasm for corsairs and buccaneers, alleged and actual, past and not so past, little known and famous- frankly it seems to me to be more down the line of a boys' book than an adult book. Among the famous names, there's Drake, John Paul Jones, Decatur; there are stories of Turks and the Barbary Coast; there's Rachael, who married a corsair and gave him a run for his money; there are tales of buried treasure, etc.
