9781466936553: The Dark Pirate

Red At Dawn quickly captures its readers, wrapping them in the ago-old dramas of intense greed, cruelty, rape, murder, and bitter-sweet romance. David K. Evans crafts a tight plot with vivid glimpses of the turbulent 1700s; a time when the Caribbean island of Roatan was the rendezvous for 'Brethren of the Coast' - lusty, hard-living pirates of the Western Caribbean. Seen through the eyes of Peter Halsey, a young New England skipper of a fishing schooner captured by maniacal pirate Captain Ned Lukas, the tale swiftly unfolds onboard the aging brigantine Rebeckah, with ports-of-call and vivid drama that include the Slave Coast of West Africa; mid-ocean capture of a venerable Spanish Galleon; a slave market on the Spanish coast of Central America, and onward to the beautiful 'deserted' shores of Roatan. Drawing upon his knowledge from over four decades of research on the island, the author paints a vivid and exciting portrait of life among elusive maroons and castaways of the 1700s, largely gone unrecorded by History; describing their desperate attempt to survive and protect their women and freedom from vicious attacks by pirates who periodically invade the small island. It is here story soars.

About the Author:

David K. Evans is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he founded the Overseas Research Center (ORC) in 1967. In his retirement he continues to take students annually to the island of Roatan off the north coast of Honduras in the Western Caribbean. For forty-seven years Dr. Evans has conducted research on Roatan and now divides his time between Winston-Salem and La Casa Promesa, his family's island home.
