The adventures of a Silesian youth in the XVII and XVIII centuries. On a trip to South America he encounters pirates, and as a result becomes one himself, living on The Isle of Pirates. There are stories of invasions of the Spanish Colonies, his marriage to an Inca princess, the subjugation of the Incas, and finally of his last unfortunate war in which all his adventures and glories come to an end. A wonderful mixture of fact and fantasy, but so engagingly done that one is ready to believe it all. With map of South America.
