    Another terrific historic novel by Stephen W. Meader, a New Hampshire author known for his ability to connect with boy readers. I haven't read this in a while, but it is fast paced and excellent. This features a boy who heads to sea. Another terrific historic novel by Stephen W. Meader, a New Hampshire author known for his ability to connect with boy readers.

    Meader's first published work, its filled with men and boys with stern and resolute features who ne'er shed an unmanly tear and dastardly, disfigured, foul villains. The protagonists lack the depth of character that that show up in his later written works and the few women who appear are treated more as objects than as people. Still, its better than many of its contemporaries, though that's faint praise! T Model Tommy is one of his better works if you want to read an example of boy's books from Meader's first published work, its filled with men and boys with stern and resolute features who ne'er shed an unmanly tear and dastardly, disfigured, foul villains. The protagonists lack the depth of character that that show up in his later written works and the few women who appear are treated more as objects than as people. Still, its better than many of its contemporaries, though that's faint praise! T Model Tommy is one of his better works if you want to read an example of boy's books from the early 20th century. I read by Dad's first edition, printed in 1920, I'm too lazy to add a new edition entry.

    The story of two young men kidnapped by pirates in 1718. It tells of there adventures on the pirate ship, their subsequent escape and rescue. And finally helping to track down the pirates and discovering their buried treasure. I found this a fun book to read. It brought back childhood fantasies of adventures on the high seas and searching for buried treasure. I recommend this book.

    I was delighted to discover a couple of Stephen Meader's books and am now reading all of his work, beginning with his first published work: The Black Buccaneer. As with Meader's later books, this historical novel is chillingly suspenseful, brilliantly written, and knowledgeable. It is an entertaining novel and a great introduction to a chapter in Early American history.

    This is not only an exciting tale of the high seas and dangerous pirates, it also provides a realistic and vivid description of North America's coast as it was seen by the earliest settlers.

    Like all Stephen W. Meader books this one is well researched and well written. I have read every single one of his books and am sad to this day that he did not write more.
