The Black Pennant
By (author) Joseph Lamb
‘Hoist the Black Pennant!’A bitter taste rose in my throat and I thought I might be sick, as that hideous black flag crept to the top of the main mast.Stromness, Orkney, 1796When orphan Innes is plucked from poverty by Captain John Fullarton, he is grateful to begin a new and better life at sea aboard The Finmurray. But when a storm destroys their ship, their fortunes change for the worse and Innes is suddenly-and unwillingly-thrust into a bloodthirsty life as a pirate, with no way to escape…Based on true events, The Black Pennant tells the story of the rise and fall of one of Scotland’s lesser-known pirates and a young boy’s struggle to save him.
