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.
Its set earlier in the English Maritime history...and perhaps an area neglected..and more reading to be done....
Well worth a read.
