Pedro Morillo is the most feared pirate in the Caribbean. He swoops down on merchant ships of all nations but has a special hatred for the English. Rarely does any victim escape to tell the tale. Filled with pitched battles at sea, kidnapping and hurricanes young officer Courtenay beards the lion in his den for a final showdown to the death in the tradewinds.
A book for anyone who loves stories of pirates and nautical fiction. Published over 100 years ago the story remains alive and vivid but filled with such archaic and overblown (by today's tastes) writing such as:
"For pity's sake," I ejaculated, "give me something to drink!"
"Ten thousand pounds?" I ejaculated.
"Thanks," answered I, with alacrity.
Under the hands of Richard S. Philbrick the book has been extensively edited and rewritten to read like a novel of the 21st century.
