"The background for this novel of the American Revolution is Boston, New York, Paris, Kentucky, and South Carolina. The story is told by Oliver Wiswell, New Englander, who is loyal to the mother country. 'The present novel, which is history for all its fictional form, will startle every man, woman and child who has been taught to believe that the American Revolution was fought and won by bands of angels. It is, in short, the Revolution as seen by men whom the Revolutionary fathers called Tories and who called themselves Loyalists. In it all the bitterness of a horrible civil war is powerfully and dramatically brought back to live.'" N Y Times

Boon Island by Kenneth Lewis Roberts( Book )

30 editions published between 1955 and 1996 in English and Swedish and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic tale of shipwreck and survival is reprinted with essays that provide a historical perspective and trace the sources from which Kenneth Roberts (1885-1957) drew his tale. A native Mainer, Roberts, whose historical novels include Northwest Passage and Arundel, was intrigued by the story of the December 1710 wreck of the Nottingham. After running aground a dozen miles offshore, the ship broke up, stranding her crew with minimal tools, scant shelter, and a few pieces of cheese. The men survived nearly a month of screeching gales, sub-freezing temperatures, and driving snowstorms. During their ordeal they resorted to cannibalism and were finally rescued after one of them made it ashore on a crude raft. Included here are contemporary accounts from crew members, offering dramatically different versions of the true-life traumatic event and a fascinating counterpoint to Roberts' fictionalized version. A bestseller when published in 1956, Boon Island is a story of the ways that crisis can inspire the best—and worst—in human nature -- Googlebooks

Young Captain Richard Nason of Arundel, Maine, is the successful commander of his family's brig, which carries cargo to and from ports all over the world. Hence, he has no use for the talk of war with England -- until he is kidnapped by a press gang and forced to serve aboard a British warship. He escapes to take revenge on his abusive captors as skipper of the privateer Lively Lady, a sloop that he names after the young, pretty, vivacious wife of dour, bigoted English nobleman Arthur Ransome, whom Nason encountered in Maine before going to war. Due to a twist of fate, Nason and his crew are captured and taken to England's infamous Dartmoor Prison, where the American suffers hardships that last even beyond the end of the war. On a vibrant background of sailing ships and hand-to-hand combat, Roberts uses more subtle brushstrokes to portray extraordinary courage n the face of despair, unlikely friendships that endure the worst of circumstances, and unspoken love that stands the test of time -- Amazon
