Young Adult Fiction. In SEAS OF SOUTH AFRICA, the sixth volume in the best-selling Submarine Outlaw series, it has been over two years since the young explorer first set sail in his own submarine, with his dog and seagull crew. Now, almost seventeen, Alfred is on the cusp of switching from exploring the world to playing an active environmentalist role in protecting the sea that he loves so dearly. Brought into conflict with the pirate scourge that plagues Africa's eastern shores, Alfred takes action against them, only to bring them into tireless pursuit of him. Escaping overland to Johannesburg, with a reckless young inventor from Soweto, Alfred discovers that the violence which taints the shores of the continent is deeply embedded in the life of South African society, so recently freed from apartheid. Despairing at the cruelty inflicted upon his friend, Alfred learns that the antidote to violence is not more violence, but the strength of one's heart and an indomitable determination to improve the world, as exemplified in the life of Nelson Mandela. Armed with new inspiration, Alfred is ready to become the eco-warrior he was destined to be.

From the Back Cover:

"There was a small engine in front, and a pair of wings that looked like they were made of canvas. He was pedalling as if he were in a race. But he was losing. Just as I poked my head out of the portal again, he fell into the sea like a dead bird."

In Seas of South Africa, Alfred and his crew clash with the pirates that plague Africa's east coast. Attacked, bruised, but with a treasure in tow, Al escapes by the skin of his teeth, with pirates in pursuit. Teaming up with a brilliant but reckless young inventor from Soweto, he travels overland to Johannesburg, witnessing both the beauty and the ugliness of post-Apartheid South Africa. Heartened by the people he meets, and inspired by the life of Nelson Mandela, Al finds the final affirmation he needs to become an active environmentalist.

"An excellent series....Suspenseful, exciting, thought-provoking and fun for any age. Highly recommended!"--CM Magazine
