Critical Essay by Virginia Haviland

["Yankee Privateer"] is a full-length tale of historical intrigue with more than enough action for one volume as the author invents one hair-raising catastrophe and escape after another, with a tempo that increases rapidly from a moderate beginning….

Among unusual scenes of action Plymouth's Old Mill Prison with its fully described regime stands out particularly.

This is not the best of this author's stories, which are very good indeed, but it is excellent historical adventure, noteworthy for its interpretation of privateering from American, British, and French angles. (p. 14)
