The Queen of the Caribbean

Ebook Paperback

“The night I buried the Red Corsair in the waters off Venezuela, I swore to destroy Van Guld and all those who bore his name. He had killed my family and I in turn would kill his. I swore to God and the heavens and upon my brothers’ souls. All my men bore witness. Such a vow cannot be broken! And yet the traitorous murderer still lives! My brothers still cry out for revenge, and they shall have it!”

The Caribbean, 17th century. Four years have passed since the battle of Gibraltar. The Black Corsair has tracked Van Guld down at last and has formed an alliance with three of the most formidable pirates in the Gulf to finally bring his foe to justice.

Selected by Julia Eccleshare as one of the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.

About the Author

Salgari dayaki Emilio Salgari (1862-1911) was a writer of action adventure swashbucklers and a pioneer of Italian science fiction. He is one of Italy's most translated authors and is considered the father of Italian adventure fiction and the grandfather of the Spaghetti Western. He wrote more than 200 adventure novels and short stories, many of which are considered classics in Europe and Latin America. In 1897, he was named Knight of the Order of the Crown of Italy for his contributions to popular Italian literature.

" The Queen of the Caribbean, the second volume of Emilio Salgari’s Black Corsair series, is as funfilled and exciting as its predecessor, The Black Corsair. I eagerly wait for the third episode of Emilio Salgari’s Black Corsair spellbinding series." ~Victor Rodriguez, A reviewer on Amazon.com, October 10, 2017.
