Featured writer

Emilio Salgari (1862-1911) was one most popular adventure writers of all time, yet few of his books were translated into English. He wrote about pirates, fierce native American tribes, and gunmen in the old west. In his stories he was a globetrotter and an explorer. In real life, he never traveled beyond the Adriatic, which lay not far from his Italian home. Read a Salgari story here:
