Malaysia, 1849. The Tigers of Mompracem are a band of rebel pirates fighting for the defense of tiny native kingdoms against the colonial powers of the Dutch and British empires. They are led by Sandokan, the indomitable "Tiger of Malaysia", and his faithful friend Yanez de Gomera, a Portuguese wanderer and adventurer. Orphaned when the British murdered his family and stole his throne, Sandokan has been mercilessly leading his men in vengeance. But when the pirate learns of the extraordinary "Pearl of Labuan" his fortunes begin to change...

From the Author:

Sharing traditions. That's what we do at ROH Press. For over a century the adventure novels of Emilio Salgari have been popular with children in Italy and Latin America. His most popular works were pirate tales featuring Sandokan, 'the Tiger of Malaysia' and the Black Corsair, a nobleman turned pirate to avenge the murder of his brothers. They are considered classics for readers aged 10-14 and have been the basis for comic books, TV series and movies.
 
ROH Press has published the first ever English translations of his most popular works. In 2008, they were awarded the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs' Translation Award for the English language version of Emilio Salgari's classic The Tigers of Mompracem. In 2009 the Sandokan and Black Corsair novels were both listed in Julia Eccleshare's 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. 

Review:

"Great retro, daggers-clenched-in-teeth, bloodthirsty pirate, swashbuckling fun. Salgari is much under-appreciated in the English speaking world." Don, Goodreads.com 
"Great adventure story about pirates in Malaysia. There is a love story at the heart of this swashbuckling tale but mainly it is about a cunning group of outlaws outsmarting the powers that be with clever tricks and a blatant disregard for their own safety. Easy reading. I am surprised it hasn't become a movie series." ~ Philip Lane, Goodreads.com

"Salgari's pirate tale is chock full of action, [like] the better dime-novel adventures of the late 19th-early 20th century, Douglas Fairbanks'Sr. swashbuckling movies, or the Indiana Jones films -- this is the sort of thing Salgari has put to paper." ~ George Dodds, Sfsite.com

In my search for the best in historical,swashbuckler-type adventure fiction, I have more than once stumbled across thename of Emilio Salgari. Having now read the first book, Sandokan: The Tigers of Mompracem, I must saythat I can see what all the fuss is about, but I would have seen it all evenbetter had I been able to read the book when I was about thirteen. The story ofa vicious, revenge-obsessed pirate who suddenly falls inlove, causing everything to change for him, is full of the kind of melodrama,and spurts of blood, that I would have loved at that age. Elijah Kinch Spector 

This tale captivates the reader and sweeps him/her back in time on a whirlwind ride through storm-swept seas and lush tropical jungles inhabited by dangerous beasts. ~ Cindy Vallar, Pirates and Privateers

"The book really flies from adventure to adventure. Most of the short chapters end on an insane cliff-hanger. I would imagine if you were reading this as a chapter book with a kid, the story layout would be fun. Anyhow, the book is a blast. I can see why it's an old, beloved children's book." ~ Cindy, Goodreads.com
