KIRKUS REVIEW

An early novel by the author of the popular seafaring series starring Capt. Jack Aubrey and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin (The Wine-Dark Sea, 1993; The Truelove, 1992, etc.). Originally published in the U.S. in 1956, the story features young midshipman Peter Palafox, who ships out in 1740 on the Centurion with Baron Anson for a four-year circumnavigation of the globe. Not a mature piece of work, but appealing enough to satisfy fans of O'Brian's naval sagas.
