Editorial Reviews

Review

“Captain Blood, Zorro, the Scarlet Pimpernel, Brigadier Gerard, Robin Hood; stories with titles such as ‘Pirate’s Gold’ and ‘The Queen’s Rose’― this is just the gift for, in Arthur Conan Doyle’s words, ‘the boy who’s half a man, OR the man who’s half a boy.’”
- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

“A fantastic selection of brilliant, old-school swashbucklers. Ellsworth has chosen sterling historical adventures from neglected and forgotten writers.”
- Howard Andrew Jones, author of the acclaimed Desert of Souls series and editor of the eight-volume collected historical adventures of Harold Lamb

“An excellent read for all those who enjoy swashbuckling―and for those who’d like an introduction to the world of derring-do.”
- AuthorLink

“The combined historical research is impressive. The tales are as quick and cutting as a rapier blade. An excellent and entertaining survey of the genre’s roots, a brilliant selection of dash, pluck, skill, yearning, and fortune.”
- Publishers Weekly
