Charles Johnson Audio Books

Captain Charles Johnson is a pseudonym for an unknown British author of the book A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates, published in 1724. There are no records of a captain by that name. Some scholars believe that the author was actually Daniel Defoe, who was known to have written about pirates. Others believe it was Nathaniel Mist, a journalist, publisher, and former seaman who had sailed in the West Indies. It was Mist’s name that was attached to the first filing of this book with the office of Her Majesty’s Stationery.
