Murder and mutiny in remotest Patagonia
Published by Moriarty Press
It's 1740, and a British warship is wrecked on a remote island in Patagonia. But that is only the first of Midshipman Isaac Morris's problems. When mutiny among the crew leads to murder, Isaac must survive starvation, slavery and imprisonment if he wants to see his home again....
Advance praise for Shipwrecked!:
"Mutiny, murder, slavery and adventure on the high seas – and it's all true. What more could a young reader want? The story of the disastrous voyage of HMS Wager, and its rounding of Cape Horn in 1740, has been told before, but not in a way quite so accessible for kids. Through the eyes of the young midshipman Isaac Morris, Alexandra Pratt takes us straight to the heart of a terrifying yet thrilling tale." Nick Hazlewood, author and film producer.
