Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blending confessional, ship’s log, and adventure, the narrative interweaves a disquisition on slavery, poverty, race relations and an African worldview at odds with Western materialism.” Publishers Weekly

Author Bio: Captain Charles Johnson

Author Bio: Captain Charles Johnson

Captain Charles Johnson is a pseudonym for an unknown British author of the book A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates, published in 1724. There are no records of a captain by that name. Some scholars believe that the author was actually Daniel Defoe, who was known to have written about pirates. Others believe it was Nathaniel Mist, a journalist, publisher, and former seaman who had sailed in the West Indies. It was Mist’s name that was attached to the first filing of this book with the office of Her Majesty’s Stationery.
