Douglas Wilson's first foray into children's fiction, Blackthorne Winter, is set on the Chesapeake Bay during the reign of Queen Ann. This pirate novel contrasts righteous behavior and foolishness as readers follow the service of fifteen-year-old Thomas Ingle on the Prudent Hannah under the honorable Captain Monroe and then their unfortunate tour on the Lady Constance. Treasure, financial hardship, and pirate mystique all add to the cleverly woven tale. Full-color illustrated plates included. 141 glossy pages, softcover.
