For studying the Elizabethan era, there is no finer classic novel than this! Full of the drama of this age of exploration, discovery and conquest, Kingsley has truly brought this colorful time to life. From the coral reefs of the Barbados to the jungles of the Orinoco and to the providential defeat of the Spanish Armada, this vibrant novel captures the daring spirit of the Elizabethan adventurers who sailed with Sir Francis Drake.
If the Rose of Torridge herself had walked into the room, she could hardly have caused more blank astonishment than Frank's bold speech. Every guest turned red, and pale, and red again, and looked at the other as much as to say, "What right has any one but I to drink her? Lift your glass, and I will dash it out of your hand;" but Frank, with sweet effrontery, drank "The health of the Rose of Torridge."
