Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This lush, lyrical fantasy is Steinbeck's sole work of historical fiction. Henry Morgan ruled the Spanish Main in the 1670s, ravaging the coasts of Cuba and America and striking terror wherever he went. His lust and greed knew no bounds, and he was utterly consumed by two passions; to possess the mysterious woman known as La Santa Roja, the Red Saint, and to conquer Panama and wrest 'the cup of gold' from Spanish hands.

A treasure indeed !

After years of sitting on my bookcase I’ve undertaken the task of listening to every book that I own but have never read . I’m almost done now , in fact I think this is the last one that’s available on audible .
What a brilliant book this is , a hidden treasure . The performance is outstanding as well .
You will not be disappointed.
