Captain Morgan, that jaunty pirate-looking guy of spiced rum. Who'd've thought he was an actual pirate? Pretty neat. Not the most exciting or gripping read in the world, but still, it was pretty understanding-expanding for me. For whatever reason, my knowledge of the 'New' World prior to 1776ish is pretty hazy. So reading this book helped me appreciate the how much New World history there is prior to the Declaration of Independence.
