By Rafael Sabatini
Through the tumultuous reign of James II, Englishman Peter Blood, a gentleman-physician, slightly escapes the gallows after his arrest for treating a wounded insurgent. Sentenced to 10 years of slavery on a Barbados plantation, Blood escapes from captivity and boldly embarks on a profession as a pirate, by no means wasting sight of his targets of clearing his identify and returning to England.
A rollicking story of piracy on a grand scale, accented with breathtaking maritime maneuvers, close to misses, and broadside hits, Sabatini's fast paced novel is alive with colour, romance, and pleasure. A swashbuckling vintage that brims with stolen treasure and experience at the excessive seas, Captain Blood speedy grew to become a best-seller after it was once first released in 1922.
