Find an old friend. Make a new one.

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, Spain 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, we 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 Captain Tempesta, the Sandokan series and the Black Corsair novels were listed in Julia Eccleshare's 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.
