The Pirate and The Three Cutters are two different stories; both are entertaining, but neither really remarkable. Mr. Midshipman Easy was much better.


The Pirate is the story of two brothers separated at birth, one joins the navy; the other is thought lost and adopted by a pirate, but not a pirate himself. They are reunited when the navy brother hunts down the pirate.


The Three Cutters is the story of a smuggler, a pleasure yacht, and a revenue schooner and what happens when they all cross paths.
