From the Author:

The grandmother of David Levy Yulee, Florida's first senator, was captured by pirates and sold to the vizier of Morocco. That's the story according to Florida folklore, and it's often mentioned in Florida history books. It's an enticing tidbit, but a credible Florida historian claims it is a fabrication. What is the true story?
The question intrigued me. To find an answer, I spent countless hours in various libraries, drove the back roads of Florida, and explored ancient cemeteries in St. Thomas and Gibraltar. I walked the planks of the frigate, USS Constellation, and toured the kasbahs of Morocco. One fascinating fact led to another, building such a mass that I was crushed by the weight of it until my friend Betty Myers said to me, "Just write a good story that people will want to read."
