As Hook tells his life story to his captor, it soon becomes clear that the fearsome pirate was once a scholarly, if sickly boy-until one fateful night in Port Royal, when he meets the volatile Peter Pan ...
Raise the Jolly Roger and discover the book that opened thousands of eyes to the possibility that, once upon a time, Captain Hook was not the villain we know him to be.
First published in June of 2012, this original story takes you through Captain Hook's rise to piracy, including his first confrontation with Long John Silver and his service on the Queen Anne's Revenge alongside Blackbeard at the Charleston Blockade.
This book is not a retelling of the events of J. M. Barrie's beloved novel. Far from it. It's a defense of the world's most famous pirate, told by the man himself.
Captain Hook has reason and wit behind his hatred for Peter Pan. If only someone would listen.

I was always suspicious of Pan and now the story is told. Not quite a fun loving, forever-young boy of the listless and insipid movies, but something much darker. This book, while revealing the shocking truth about the flying menace is however all about Hook and his journey from respectable young boy to murderous pirate captain and takes place mostly in this world. While the prose seemed to be aimed at the young-adult audience, the story was a real PIRATE STORY! And the story is a good'un. There is killin, betrayal, love and cannon. Throw in a croc. Neverland and other plot pieces that show up (all wrong but still recognizable) in the Hollywood versions and it's an informative and entertaining story. I'm with Hook on this one, his version rings true.
