Dr. Christopher Lemuel becomes a ship’s doctor on a privateer to escape England, after shamefully killing a man in a matter of honor. He is wounded in a sea battle, captured by pirates, and reluctantly becomes a buccaneer.
But matters become really strange and then turn deadly when he is marooned on an island populated by enormous beasts unknown in natural history.
