Peter Blood is a physician who becomes a pirate not for infamy and riches, but out of a rankling sense of injustice. Barely escaping the gallows after his arrest for treating a wounded rebel fighting the oppressive King James, Blood is unjustly transported to a Barbados plantation. Upon his escape, no ship sailing the Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions. Abounding with adventure, color, romance, and strong social commentary on the evils of slavery and the dangers of intolerance, this classic adventure is a story about how oppression drives men to desperate actions, how fate plays a hand in everyone's life, and how love is ultimately the greatest power of all.

I loved this. It has pirates, political corruption, and a strong message about slavery. I know that often high school advanced English students are often casting around for a book that would please his teacher, qualify as classic, but still is interesting and a page-turner. This is that book!
