The Privateersman Book 6:Classics of Nautical Fiction

"Privateers" were essentially freelance ships, sanctioned during wartime to sail and do battle on behalf of adversary governments. Another of the pithy, idiosyncratic novels by Captain Frederick Marryat, this one follows Alexander Musgrave, a privateer-turned-adventurer, across three continents and into the arms of a beautiful woman. Musgrave's compelling exploits make up the final sea story written by Marryat.
