Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, touched me as a kid. I turned next to his follow-on novel: Kidnapped. But my love for pirates then lay dormant for several years—until it was reignited by the birth of my grandson. His parents named him Drake.

 

I thought about writing a little history of Sir Francis Drake, as a means of inspiring my grandson.
