Soon after the success of his beloved classic Robinson Crusoe in 1719, Defoe wrote this thrilling tale of high-seas adventure. In a firsthand account, colorful rogue Captain Avery pens a letter of defense against scandalous accusations. In doing so, he draws a rousing portrait of pirate life - deadly deeds, plundered treasure, and a perilous journey to Madagascar.
