High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes
Book DescriptionSet in the last century against a tropical landscape and the ever-present sea, A High Wind in Jamaica tells the story of a family of English children who, on being sent by their parents back to England from Jamaica, fall into the hands of pirates. As this voyage of innocence continues, the events which unfold begin to take on a savagely detached and haunting quality.

Richard Hughes was born in 1900 and educated at Charterhouse School and Oriel College, Oxford.

A remarkable man, he could number Masefield, Yeats, T.E. Lawrence, Robert Graves, Augustus John and Dylan Thomas amongst his friends and acquaintances. Married to the painter Frances Bazley in 1932, he died in 1976.
