The best pirate story out there.

Just finished re-re-re-reading this. And what fun!
Reader MUST be willing to go with the flow and adjust to the story-telling style of an older era.
And also be willing to accept, as part of the story, the constant insults to the Spanish nation/military of the day--politically/historically accurate in terms of attitude, but not PC by today's standards.

But, if you are willing to sink into the best of 1920's story-telling, you are in for a treat with this one.

Sigh, happy sigh!!
