After being kidnapped from his family as a child, Bob Singleton is raised by the gypsy who purchased him. As a young man, he quickly takes to life at sea, and begins a series of adventures, both on and off land, eventually becoming a successful pirate known as Captain Singleton. The Life, Adventures and Piracies of the Famous Captain Singleton is written much in the same style as author Daniel Defoe's other famous novels, including Robinson Crusoe and Journal of the Plague Year, mixing accounts of adventure with well-researched economic and practical details that ground the story in the reality of its 18th century setting.
