KIRKUS REVIEW

Always a controversial and glamorous figure, Lafitte emerges here as a thoroughly sympathetic character in a novel that is so authentic in feel one is convinced that it is his true story. With color and careful research, Lafitte becomes a man of his times, forced by circumstances into the roles he played- as corsair, as gentleman, as patriot and idealist- and Justified for the actions he took. His life makes a superb adventure here.
