This is the first UK edition. Usual library stamps .etc to first end page. Yellowing to pages. Mylar covering. More than 100 years before the American Revolution a fight for freedom from England was waged in the West Indies. Hoover's carefully researched historical novel, the tale of gentleman-turned-buccaneer Hugh Winston and independent Barbados colonist Kay Bedford, is an easy-to-read, exciting history of the Caribbean. Africans enslaved to work the sugar cane fields, drugged with the cane waste product ''rum'' to keep them subdued; Irish and English indentured servants, virtually slaves themselves; settlers struggling with the elements and European politics; and the misfit ruffians called ''boucaniers'' all are brought vividly to life in the story of the first American revolution.
