Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ripping sea yarns from the creator of Mutiny on the Bounty.

James Norman Hall is best known as the co-author of the classic Bounty trilogy. In his later years, his favorite work was writing the tales spun by Dr. Dogbody, a peg-legged old salt who never lets the truth get in the way of a good story. Doctor Dogbody's tales vividly recreate the Napoleonic Wars, and delight with broad comedy, rollicking naval adventure, and characters that will live on in the reader's memory.

About the Author

James Norman Hall (1887-1951) was co-author with Charles Bernard Nordhoff of the Bounty trilogy, as well as The Hurricane and Botany Bay, among other works. His individual works include The Tale of a Shipwreck and Mid-Pacific. He lived in Tahiti and California.
