A gift from Em to encourage me in my Wager/Anson fascination and to help with my Facts & Fiction compilation for 'The Unknown Shore' and 'The Golden Ocean'. Not all that much I didn't know yet in this book, but it did introduce me more thoroughly to Pascoe Thomas, and gave me a clearer image of Anson as a person.
A very good reference book for connections, links and corrections of the original accounts. Well written, too. Much recommended.
