British warships battle with American privateers in this high sea adventure. Cousins Patrick and Beth have landed on the “Royal Louis” in the middle of the Revolutionary War. Cannonballs fly and swords slash. They’re captured! Now they face even more dangers. Will their new friend James Forten be sold by the British into the West Indies slave trade? Or will they all be sentenced to the overcrowded prison ship floating near shore where scores of prisoners die from filth and disease? Patrick and Beth help plan a daring escape as they witness firsthand the deeds of brave heroes who fought to make America the land of the free.

Adventures in Odyssey fans will love this additional series that focuses on the Imagination Station!
Captured on the High Seas is an easy book for readers just learning how to pick up “chapter books” and has a captivating story that will hold anyone’s attention. It’s stocked full of history facts that will interest those history lovers, as well as prayers and faith conversations. There are some vocabulary words explained and defined as well, which makes it a great home-school resource.
The story itself is clean; no cursing at all, sexual content, nor is the action graphic. It’s perfect for readers who are aged 8-13 years old.
It comes highly recommended and with 5 out of 5 stars!
