Description
The classic tale about the pirate who sailed from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, probing into the remotest parts of far east Asia. The dramatic narration of the hazardous journeys are more than travel-narrative, as there is an examination of the human predicament--man's vulnerability to sin under the pressure of circumstances, and his innate craving for redemption and divine grace.
