Publishers Description: The epic concept of The Master Mariner occupied Monsarrat's thoughts and his travels around the world for 25 years. His goal was to encompass all of British naval history, to be lived by one man. In the first volume, Running Proud, published in 1978, seaman Matthew Lawe began his 400-year odyssey with an unspeakable act of cowardice during Drake's action against the Spanish armada. For this he was condemned to guilty immortality and pursued salvation in vain from the North West Passage to Trafalgar. Now, in Darken Ship, Matthew sets sail in 1808 at the helm of an illegal slave trader ... (jacket copy)The author's untimely death in 1979 at the age of 69 stopped his work on Darken Ship. This book represents his summaries of the last seven episodes he planned.
