--Author Bob Livingstone, Flight Adviser for the movie UNBROKEN
I knew at the time of my uncle’s death that something important had been handed down to me—his love of flying. Two months later, at the age of twenty-six, I soloed in the same type of aircraft that he had owned: an unadorned, two-seat Cessna trainer. In twenty years I would be flying at 600 mph and two miles above the other traffic, working for a world-class company in the latest state-of-the-art jet. I believe my uncle would have smiled had he heard the air traffic controller ask us to begin our “reentry,” instead of the standard “descend and maintain….”
Alongside the sky’s drama I began to hear the human one and started to write, letting the happenstance of strangers, friends, new places, and ideas dovetail into American Sky. [close]

This is a short, four chapter…more
This is a short, four chapter book with minimal images (one at the start of each chapter). It uses many pirate terms and expressions that might feel unfamiliar to some people. Kids age 10 and up and avid young readers should be fine. Just in case, see pirate terms and expressions used in Yo Ho Ho and a Very Merry Christmas!
COMING SOON! as an audio book—characters will come to life in this new holiday classic!
In the tradition of It’s a Wonderful Life and Pirates of the Caribbean, S DeGiorgio casts the Pacific Ocean as a nautical canvas for a Christmas tale that teaches us you don’t have to be a bad man to be a great pirate.
Captain Blackjack Rob's great shame is that he has never fired his guns on the king’s fleet, nor plundered the holds of a captured merchant ship, despite the exploits of his father and grandfather—two of the most notorious pirates ever to have sailed the seven seas.
Left to rot in the king's jail, and nearly forgotten, Captain Rob and his crew seize an offer to deliver Yuletide cargo to the Town of Dryden by Christmas Eve, in exchange for their release. But in order to reach their destination in time, earn the king’s pardon, and ensure their freedom, they will have to chart a course straight through pirate-infested waters—a fool’s errand while sailing under the king’s colors.
