The Black Buccaneer. Jeremy’s father helped him drive the sheep into the rude pen on the island off the coast of Maine, and then hurried to return to his colonial clearing on the mainland. “I sort of hate to leave you here alone,” he said, “but I’ll be back this time tomorrow.” Before “this time tomorrow” the boy had been carried away by pirates who had been using the island as a base. A perilous trip follows to the West Indies, rough and lonesome for the boy until the son of a man prominent in the Carolinas is captured. Their attempts to escape and their trip overland to Maine complete the story. As thrilling a tale of piracy as any boy could desire.
