Captain Blood Book 9:Classics of Nautical Fiction

Captain Blood is a classic swashbuckler--filled with swordplay and adventure. Peter Blood, a physician and an English gentleman becomes a pirate after suffering a grave injustice. Barely escaping the gallows after his arrest for treating wounded rebels--who were fighting the oppressive King James--Blood is enslaved on a Barbados plantation. He escapes to Tortuga and becomes the leader of a colony of buccaneers. No ship sailing the Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions! The Robin Hood-like figure of Blood, a gentleman-rogue, homeless but for the surging decks of a pirate ship, makes for a classic hero.
