9780099529897: Captain Blood

A classic swashbuckling tale of piracy, romance and redemption — one of the great adventure novels of the 20th century.

Wrongfully arrested following the Monmouth rebellion of 1685, Peter Blood, country physician and former soldier, is exiled to the tropical colonies. Sold into slavery to a cruel plantation owner, his moral fortitude and medical ability soon earn him the favour of the island’s governor, and the attentions of Arabella, his master’s niece. When the town is attacked by marauding Spanish buccaneers, Blood springs to the rescue, and with a motley yet loyal band of shipmates, escapes to begin a life of noble piracy and adventure on the high seas.

About the Author:

Rafael Sabatini was born in Jesi, Italy in 1875 to an English mother and Italian father, both renowned opera singers. At a young age, Rafael travelled frequently, and could speak six languages fluently by the age of seventeen. After a brief stint in the business world, Sabatini turned to writing. He worked prolifically, writing short stories in the 1890s, with his first novel published in 1902. Scaramouche was published in 1921 to widespread acclaim, and was soon followed by the equally succesful Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk. He died on February 13, 1950 in Switzerland.

Review:

"Sabatini's stories abound with drama and melodrama, action and excitement and brilliant colour, as well as minute period detail. No writer, not Scott, nor Dumas, nor Stevenson, has brought the past to life more vividly or accurately . . . He is to be learned from by any who seek instruction in the craft of writing or the matter of history. This century has seen no greater expert in the two combined." -- George MacDonald Fraser "Mr. Sabatini is both a wonderfully fertile creator of exciting fiction and a stylist of distinction" * Punch * "Mr. Sabatini has stirred the pulses of thousands of readers with his heroic tales. He is a true romancer in love with the drama and colour of the world in which gallant men and beautiful women live finely against a background of history" * News Chronicle *
