In this vast historical romance, author Jack Rodgers brings back to life the Salzburgers, who arrived from Salzburg, Austria, to settle near Savannah, Georgia, in 1736. Survival is a daily struggle for these artisans, as they tend to their tools, gardens, and animals, and engage in fishing, hunting and turning raw hides into clothing. Guards are posted for security from angry Native Americans whose land has been snatched by colonists. At the heart of the story is Eric Heidt, who, after settling in the Salzburger town of Ebenezer as a lad, is bamboozled by the pirate Captain Blackblood to live as a brigand on the high seas of the Caribbean, enjoying tavern wenches when not looting galleons for their valuable cargoes. Eric meets and falls in love with lovely Rachel in the Bahamas, then is whisked away again by Blackblood and his crew. Can he ever reunite with this very special woman? Salzburg Pirate is a raw, bold novel that walks a reader right off the gangplank. Don't miss this one! Jack Rodgers grew up in Oglethorpe, Georgia
