Voyage in a Savage Sea
Voyage in a Savage Sea is a suspenseful, salty, high-seas adventure of shipwreck and cannibals that reads like a thriller. When gnarly Nate Duggan is forced to escape the London authorities, he signs on as mate of the Brigantine Houndstooth, where along with the crusty old captain, he drives the ship and crew across three oceans to Australia's fledging penal colony at Sydney Cove. There 15 year old Jeremy comes aboard as a green, new hand. While trading in the Koro Sea, a violent storm and shipwreck throw Nate and the young man together on a remote island. Hunted by cannibals led by a fierce, cunning savage; their gutsy struggle to survive is full of twists, turns and surprise. Feel the roll of the deck, the sting of the lash, and the cold fear of hunted prey as the action packed story spreads like canvas in a gale; moving from the slums of 1806 London to England's harsh new penal colony, and on the the savage islands of the South Pacific...A fast paced, satisfying read.
