Philip's bold spirit and knowledge of the sea soon win him his captain's regard. But when the Rose of Devon is seized in mid-ocean by a devious group of men plucked from a floating wreck, Phlip is forced to accompany these "gentlemen of fortune" on their murderous expeditions. Like it or not, Philip Marsham is now a pirate - with only the hangman awaiting his return to England.
With its bloody battles, brutal buccaneers, and bold, spirited hero, this rousing tale will enthrall all listeners in search of seafaring adventure.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
The sound quality was so poor that I couldn't understand the narrator's accents. In over three years of membership and dozens of books, this is the first time I had to simply give up. Very disappointing.
"Good, but lower sound quality"
The book was good, as could be expected from a newbury award winner, but the sound quality was not as good as i expected. It sounded like they'd just digitized an old degraded recording.
"abridged! poor quality! NOT WORTH IT!"
FALSE ADVERTISING! approximately 15 pages or so are missing from random places, poor audio quality, SAVE YOUR MONEY!!
You can barely hear it, don't waste your money
"Horrible audio quality"
The audio on this is terrible. Listening to it is actually painful--it's a short book; you're better off just reading it.
