Pirate Blood
The story of a lone American who ventured among the unexplored islands of the far seas, where piracy still held sway and a man was judged only by his skill with a knife and pistol... This devil-may-care hero experimenter, designs his own aircraft and ventures among the little explored islands of the far seas to find that piracy still lives and that chivalry still requires the maximum of endurance and the utmost in courage.
