This historical tome will readily adhere itself to the sailor and the naval historian, of which I profess to belong. Hard work for the landsman but of great value in understanding that century of naval advancement before the Napoleonic Wars. For me, a good read.

On this journey around the world Woodes Rogers and his fleet rescued Alexander Selkirk, who became the model for Defoe's Robinson Crusoe.

This account describes the fair and accountable way by which Woodes Rogers manages the officers and men of his very mixed crew. The exploits against the merchant ships off western South America make for an exciting read.

For that time, Woodes Rogers comes across as a modern and enlightened man.

I like this kind of book, stories of the wooden sailing ships. I found it intersting but not very exciting.

Very good book if you are into Nelson and the Sea Rogers was a real man like nelsons but obviously a bit earlier, a really good read with no frills and a lot spoken in old grammar as you may expect at that time interesting about Robinson Cruiso buy it read it 100%

This is a very interesting book and easy to read. Gives a great insight to the times when a privateer was not frowned upon.

Purchased on daily deal, glad I did excellent read well written that gives some insight into life at sea during the period. Occasionally dabble in naval history and consider this an excellent addition to my small library on the subject. Certainly not as dry as some of the previous books I've read on the subject.

Not what I expected....more on the biographical side...not a novel...but well worth reading..
Its set earlier in the English Maritime history...and perhaps an area neglected..and more reading to be done....

This book is full of information about the times back then. The voyages, hardships, battles and places visited are well described and it's easy to have a picture in our mind as you read the adventures that the Captain and crew experienced.
Well worth a read.
