James Porter was a convict who needed a way out of Tasmania. But he never stole a ship, did he?
This historical fiction is based upon the true story of James Porter and his companions, convicts who escaped from Tasmania to South America. Once caught, they devised an unexpected way of avoiding a hanging by exploiting a legal loophole that meant that they weren't technically pirates.
A mix of adventure and suspense with a little humour thrown in, this book is sure to engage reluctant young readers. Its strong focus upon the exploits of men finding their way out of trouble will be of particular interest to boys.
