Pirate or Patriot
Called a pirate by the British and a patriot by the Americans, John Paul Jones was an accused murderer, a hero, and the father of the American Navy.
Newberry Medalist Armstrong Sperry tells the exciting story of the man who led a rag-tag continental navy to victory at sea. A fighting ship was the perfect command for John Paul Jones. Vowing always to "sail in harm's way," he terrorized the Royal Navy across the wide Atlantic, from the colonies to England's shore.
Revisit Jones's bloodiest battles and witness this controversial hero's rallying cry as his crippled ship Bonhomme Richard sinks under him during a fierce clash with a British warship: "I have just begun to fight!"
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
In 1941, Armstrong Sperry won the Newbery Medal for Call it Courage—a thrilling tale of a young boy in the South Sea Islands. He was also the author and illustrator of more than twenty-five books.
