Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Pirate Of Exquisite Mind: The Life Of William Dampier (Paperback)
This is an amazing tale, and if you have any interest in the period I would strongly recommend it. The story is almost incredible, and the authors tell it with great skill so that Dampier's character shines through. Thankfully, he is an amazing and engaging subject who is inquisitive, at time sensitive and thoughtful but nevertheless hardy and adventurous. The book is written in a lively style, such that although it is an historical biography it is highly readable and at times quite gripping.
I liked the book so much I bought two copies to give as gifts.
