While Captain Rodriguez de Medina and his pirate crew are on the beach partying, the three young prisoners in the brig of his ship, the San Paulo, are plotting. Their plan: steal the ship, steal the infamous reputation of Rodriguez de Medina, steal his plan to capture the gold laden Man-of-War, the Endurance. The three adolescents steal the San Paulo, but manning a ship with three sets of hands is one thing—attacking the Endurance is a whole new beast. But James, the leader of the pack, has a plan. He will rely on the feared reputation of Captain Rodriguez. Every ship that has faced Captain Rodriguez in the past eight months has surrendered without a fight. This is the crux of James' plan. No one, including the Endurance, knows the San Paulo was commandeered by three ruffians. They're going to impersonate Rodriguez and the Endurance will surrender her treasure. Or so James hopes.

About the Author

I’ve watched Muslims pray Asr, Buddhists kowtow before golden Buddhas, and Taoists leave snack cakes on the alter of their chosen deity. I’ve seen dragon boats move like water striders across Chinese lakes and I’ve sung Queen on karaoke night. In South Florida, I watched the Bush Garden fireworks every night for an entire summer while I sat on the hood of my truck thinking about God. I’ve jumped from a plane and eaten pancakes with a rocket scientist. I’ve thrown shells in the ocean as I watched the sun set on a deserted island. I worked as a Southern Baptist minister before coming to China to be an ESL teacher. I have since continued my writing and look forward to publishing more Young Adult novels. As for who I really am, I enjoy good coffee, saltwater fish keeping, canoeing, quiet places, good friends, and my wife Jessica.

A dying Earth provides the backdrop for this riveting account of humanity's will to survive. The story is fraught with adventure, innovation, and raw human emotion as it builds toward a stunning climax.

This is a thought provoking book which is a quick and fun read! It makes you think about the impact we are having on our planet.

A very interesting and relevant story based on the times we are living in now. This story eerily prophesies the fate of our planet and its living creatures if we do not change our destructive ways.

Endurance is an interesting story about how humanity gradually ruins the Earth through overpopulation, climate change, and pollution. A multitude of species have become extinct and humanity will be next if something drastic is not done. A group of nations unite and build a large starship to fly a few thousand people across interstellar space to another planet to start over.
