Critical Essay by Alice M. Jordan

[Scarface] is a vigorous, exciting story dealing with the days when the islands of the West Indies were infested with fearless, bloodthirsty pirates. In particular, it tells about the course of events by which a boy captured in infancy, ill-treated and enslaved by one of the evil and most daring of the "Brothers of the Coast," solved the mystery of his identity. The story has full share of brutality in the tradition of such tales, but it holds to the history of the period and will be eagerly read by young people. (p. 42)

Alice M. Jordan, in The Horn Book Magazine (copyrighted, 1949, by The Horn Book, Inc., Boston), January-February 1949.
