Author Flemming to sign copies of new book at Tatnuck Bookseller
The book is about the true story of the ordeal of Philip Ashton during the golden age of piracy.
Called America’s real-life Robinson Crusoe, Ashton was a young fisherman who was captured by pirates, impressed as a crewman, and subjected to torture and hardship. He eventually escaped and lived as a castaway and scavenger on a deserted island in the Caribbean. Based on a rare copy of Ashton’s 1725 account, Flemming’s vivid portrait recounts this maritime world during the golden age of piracy.
