This is an auction for THE WHITE RAJAH by Nicholas Monsarrat.

“A fine swashbuckler by an accomplished storyteller.”
- New York Post reviews:

“The breathtaking island of Makassang, in the Java Sea, is the setting for this tremendous historical novel. It is a place both splendid and savage, where piracy, plundering and barbarism are rife. The ageing Rajah, threatened by native rebellion, enlists the help of Richard Marriott - baronet's son-turned buccaneer - promising him a fortune to save his throne. But when Richard falls in love with the Rajah's beautiful daughter, the island, and its people, he find himself drawn into a personal quest to restore peace and prosperity.”

“FIVE STARS!!! Wow. What a powerful story about leadership. The author gave the lead character just enough stubbornness, wisdom, courage and compassion to make men envy him and women fall madly in love with him. Reading this story was like watching one of those cinemascope epics from days past, with a real hero. I really enjoyed getting lost between the pages of The White Rajah. I look forward to reading another Nicholas Monsarrat book in the future.”
