About Book

Virginia Woolf
"Marryat has the power to set us in the midst of ships and men and sea and sky all vivid, authentic."

"This was Marryat's navy, his world, and no one brings it to us with greater authenticity."

Joseph Conrad
". . . [Marryat's] greatness is undeniable."

Library Journal
"When your [Patrick] O'Brians are out, recommend Marryat."

Book Description
Privateers were essentially freelance ships, sanctioned during wartime to sail and do battle on behalf of adversary governments, and this tale follows Alexander Musgrave, a privateer-turned-adventurer, across three continents and into the arms of a beautiful woman.
