Captain Blood
by Rafael Sabatini




Overview -
During the tumultuous reign of James II, Englishman Peter Blood, a gentleman-physician barely escapes the gallows after his arrest for treating a wounded rebel. Sentenced to ten years of slavery on a Barbados plantation, Blood escapes from captivity and boldly embarks on a career as a pirate, never losing sight of his goals of clearing his name and returning to England.
A rollicking tale of piracy on a grand scale, accented with breathtaking maritime maneuvers, near misses, and broadside hits, Sabatini's fast-paced novel is alive with color, romance, and excitement. A swashbuckling classic that brims with stolen treasure and adventure on the high seas, Captain Blood quickly became a best-seller soon after it was first published in 1922.
A salty dose of high-seas adventure for all fiction collections.--Library Journal
Captain Blood is the very beau ideal of a pirate.--The New York Times Book Review
Glorious. I never enjoyed a novel more.--Norman Mailer
