Sharing traditions. That's what we do at ROH Press. For over a century the adventure novels of Emilio Salgari have been popular with children in Italy and Latin America. His most popular works were pirate tales featuring Sandokan, 'the Tiger of Malaysia' and the Black Corsair, a nobleman turned pirate to avenge the murder of his brothers. They are considered classics for readers aged 10-14 and have been the basis for comic books, TV series and movies.

"Salgari è famoso come scrittore di romanzi, ma si deve convenire che i racconti sono a lui congeniali. Rispondono infatti a una particolare vocazione stilistica: muovono sempre da un'intuizione, da un'idea forte. La tipologia dei personaggi e degli ambienti è la stessa dei testi più lunghi. Ma, nello stesso tempo, lo scrittore è consapevole che la brevità, l'essenzialità, la linearità della storia sono elementi da cui non si può prescindere." ~ Claudio Gallo

Ci sono tutti i migliori ingredienti dei romanzi di Salgari con qualche cosa di più." ~ Riccardo Colombo
