What the Critics Say

"Roger Cosham demonstrates his narrative versatility with deft changes of tone and inflection, and pacing that keeps the lengthy book from becoming tedious. Fans of naval stories should love Johnson's book, which honors Stevenson's classic." (AudioFile)

Pirate Tale

Supposed to be related to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure island. Perhaps. I think it is better, than Treasure Island.
More of a fictional account of young John Paul Jones, before he became famous, than anything else.
Left me wanting to hear the rest of the story.

Truly Delightful

I have loved " Treasure Island " since I was a boy a just had to listen to this . While I would have like to had more of Old Long John Silver more prominent in the story it is still a delightful story to set your sail by for a high seas adventure.
