Published in 1922, Captain Blood is an adventure novel written by Rafael Sabatini. Taking place in in the 1680's, it concerns the adventures of irish physician Dr. Peter Blood. Captured and enslaved on an island in the Caribbean, Blood escapes and overcomes his bleak situation by choosing to become a pirate. (Hey come on, they have really good hats, so why not?)

The background of this novel is based on historical facts. The main events being the Monmouth rebellion in 1685 and the Glorious Revolution in 1688. Blood's pirate adventures closely resemble the adventures that the real Sir Henry Morgan experienced.

Sabatini wrote two more books concerning Blood's pirate adventures, but as far as I know, those aren't in the public domain yet.

Edit: Now that I sorta know what I am doing, I cleaned up this file are re-uploaded the new version. I fixed the TOC links, quotes, margins and indents. Much more reader-friendly now. Version 1.0 had 138 views

I've edited the thread title to match the new version. But, do you happen to know how many views the previous version had? We like to know so we can keep track. All you need have done when you removed the old version was put in a line saying...
Version 1.0 had ## views

That would have done it.
