Item Description: Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was William Dampier spassion to see the world that turned him into a buccaneer. He possessed remarkable powers of observation and analysis, and his life as a seventeenth-century navigator aboard pirate and privateering ships is brilliantly detailed inhis journal. Throughout his travels of Central and South America and the East Indies, Dampier provides riveting accounts of sea battles against Spanish treasure ships, as well as pirate life, lore, and customs. Originally published in 1697 as the New Voyage, his journal became an instant success, and has been read ever since as one of the greatest travel and adventure accounts ever written. But Memoirs of a Buccaneer is far more than historical adventure.Dampier wasa man of intelligence and education with a strong naturalist s urge, and his book quickly became a vital source of information on the geology, biology, zoology, and peoples of the lands he visited. His descriptions of the West Indian manatee, booby birds, cacao, and mangrove treesflora and fauna never before heard of in England and the Continentare incredibly accurate. His notes on the produce of Guam and Mindanaococonuts, vanilla beans, bananas, breadfruit, and moreexerted a powerful influence on Britain s explorations and colonizations. And his depictions of Central America s Mosquito Indians and the natives of Mindanao provedto be highlyreliable. The influence of this classic book on the work of later travelers is incalculable, leadingwriters such as Defoe, Swift, and Coleridge to borrow both facts and literary style from it. It continues to inspire readers today. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780486457260
