A daring classic tale of childhood adventure on the high seas Written in 1929, this is the story of the Bas-Thornton children, whose parents send them to safety in England following a hurricane in the post-colonial Jamaica they call home. Their voyage turns from a peaceful farewell to their idyllic carefree lives to a perilous adventure when their ship is captured by pirates. The novel is often called one of the best of the 20th Century. Hughes was praised for his portrayal of children; they are subject to violence and not beyond committing terrible acts themselves, and in writing children without emotional reduction he paved the way for later masterworks such as "Lord Of The Flies." This recording also includes an original recorded interview with Richard Graves, the only biographer of Richard Hughes. Unabridged.
