Let him go abroad to a distant country; let him go to some place where he is not known. Don't let him go to the devil, where he is known.

So commences this historic saga based on a quote from The Life of Johnson (Boswell), 1773. Master Walter Beaumont is the principal character; he must depart from his life of debauchery and unintentional murder in England and set sail to a distant country. In England he is indeed well known to the devil. As the second-born son of a noble family, he departs on board HMS Resolution with the famous explorer Captain James Cook and the master of the ship, William Bligh - for this is a tale set in the late 1770s and centered on the factual third voyage of Captain Cook to return Omai to Tahiti and attempt to discover the famed Northwest Passage. We follow Beaumont's journey across the ocean to the South Sea Islands. This emotional story explores his trials, tribulations, and triumphs as he moves from being a whore seeker to a hero.

Entertwined with his journey are the lives of his other family members (Lord Beaumont, Lady Beaumont, and his older brother, Jonathan), as well all people on board the ship and on the islands. This is an entertaining historical story from the days of Captain James Cook and Mr. William Bligh, and listeners will appreciate the great amount of research that Gunter Swoboda has undertaken. This book is indeed an education!
