An 18th Century Royal Navy saga.
John Byron became a vice-admiral in
the Royal Navy but, as a midshipman,
his ship, HMS Wager, was shipwrecked
on the coast of Patagonia. The survivors
decided to split in two teams, one to
make its way by boat to Rio de Janeiro,
the other, John Byron's, to sail North
and meet Spaniards.The wreck of the
Wager, next to the mutiny on the Bounty,
stands as one of the most powerful true
adventure stories in the history of the sea.
Based in part on journals kept by
Midshipman John Byron-future grandfather
to the poet-the narrative follows the
voyage of the Wager, a 40 gun English
supply ship detailed to accompany a
squadron searching for Spanish treasure
ships in the Pacific.
