Book Summary

English Captain Charles Hunter and his crew of ruffians sail from colonial Jamaica to infiltrate a Spanish-controlled island, commandeering the galleon El Trinidad and its fortune in gold after a bloody battle, but Hunter and his crew have plenty of danger and adventure ahead of them, in this 17th-century swashbuckling tale found among the late author's files after his passing. 1.25 million first printing.
