A young albatross finds safety with Tommy, amid the vast waters, beginning a relationship that would last across time.

Tommy, orphan, escapes the fire of London on a cargo ship which is then plundered by pirates...he is captured and taken to their haven, hidden in the wilds of a jungle. Short Shanks, a wild and crazy pirate, visits the haven while his ship is refurbished to his higher standards. Tommy hides on Short Shanks ship but is found and cast adrift in a lifeboat by the surly Captain.

A young albatross finds safety with Tommy, amid the vast waters, beginning a relationship that would last across time.

Through growing up on an island with natives terrified of cosmic forces, to further tragic adventures on doomed vessels of the sea and a life immersed in death beyond the shadows and living as a hermit for 150 years with only a mind of tortured memories...Tommy shares his story with a young man who happens to be a distant descendant and the dark spell over him is broken.

The author thought that Coleridge's 'Rime Of The Ancient Mariner' would be a sure-fire winner for students years ago. He was fascinated with the visual masterpiece and he has finally come up with this adaptation based on the original poem. A classic for a new generation of readers and a revitalised enthusiasm that the story will find the reception it deserves.

"A classic retelling of a wonderful poem and given such fresh passion for new readers, well done and shall make sure my children know this tale as I am sure generations to come will also..." Derek, Indiebook Reviewer
