    In the early 1900s Lucy Fitch Perkins wrote a series of children's books about twins, set in different times and places. This one, in 1676 Virginia when plantations were isolated and vulnerable, connected by the river, has twelve-year-old plantation heir Tom and Beatrix opposing river pirates in a very realistic manner. That realism has probably reduced today's audience for the book, because the work is mostly done by slaves. My mother wouldn't have read this to me, which I think was rather ostrich-like, but understandable.
