    Please join Mr. Flemming as he talks about his new book, telling the true story of Philip Ashton—a nineteen-year-old fisherman captured by pirates, impressed as a crewman, subjected to torture and hardship, who eventually escaped and lived as a castaway on a deserted island in the Caribbean.

    Publishers Weekly has given his book a starred review, “Flemming relates the story of the capture by pirates of Philip Ashton in 1722, and in the process he reveals a fascinating history of pirates during the first decades of the 18th century, “the golden age of piracy.” . . . From battles with warships to the way the pirates split their plunder, Flemming’s focus on individual actors adds a welcome depth to the history of piracy with this engaging and harrowing account of “America’s real-life Robinson Crusoe.””
