The Barbary Pirates --- by William Dietrich. Our hero is swashbuckling Ethan Gale. In this mission he is accompanied by Robert Fulton who is later to go on and invent the steamboat. The setting is along the north shore of Africa. The time is during the early nineteenth century. The mission is to find the terrible weapon Archimedes invented and to keep it from falling into enemy hands. This novel is elegant streaked with whimsy. There's lots action, suspense and adventure. There are ogres, dungeons, dragons, villains, janissaries, and jewels making the book difficult to put down. It leaves you hankering for more.
