Red Read’s life takes an alarming turn when his mother sells him to an infamous smuggler plying his trade off the north-west coast in the closing days of the 19th century. From terrifying encounters with cut-throat pirates to battling the forces of nature in a tropical typhoon, Red is in for the adventure of a lifetime.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Jam packed with action and adventure…’ Reading Time

‘Like all good pirate stories it’s the sort of book you can’t put down and end up reading under the blankets with your torch when you’re supposed to be asleep.’ The West Australian

‘…[a] frightening and exhilarating adventure aboard The Black Dragon.’ Cockburn Gazette

‘The action is nicely balanced against the Captain’s ethics and his tender care of young Red … Jorgensen’s storytelling is gripping’ Farm Weekly
