A classic swashbuckling adventure on the high seas Peter Blood is a
physician and an English gentleman who becomes a pirate out of a
rankling sense of injustice. Barely escaping the gallows after his
arrest for treating wounded rebels who were fighting the oppressive
King James, Blood flees England and becomes enslaved on a Barbados
plantation of buccaneers. When he escapes, no ship sailing the
Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions. Abounding with
adventure, color, romance, and strong social commentary on the
evils of slavery and the dangers of intolerance, this classic
adventure is a story about how oppression drives men to desperate
actions, how fate plays a hand in everyone's life, and how love is
ultimately the greatest power of all.
