Gregory N  FlemmingWestborough – Author Gregory N. Flemming, the author of “At the Point of a Cutlass,” will be at Tatnuck Bookseller, Sunday, June 8, from 1 – 3 p.m.

The book is about the true story of the ordeal of Philip Ashton during the golden age of piracy.

Called America's real-life Robinson Crusoe, Ashton was a young fisherman who was captured by pirates, impressed as a crewman, and subjected to torture and hardship. He eventually escaped and lived as a castaway and scavenger on a deserted island in the Caribbean. Based on a rare copy of Ashton's 1725 account, Flemming's vivid portrait recounts this maritime world during the golden age of piracy.
