Called America's real-life Robinson Crusoe, this thrilling book relays the true story of Philip Ashton. In 1725, Ashton was just a nineteen-year-old fisherman when he was captured by pirates and impressed as a crewman. During his time as a pirate captive, he was subject to torture and hardship. Ashton eventually escaped but was reduced to being a castaway and scavenger on a desert island in the Caribbean.
