A Pirate of Exquisite Mind: Explorer, Naturalist, and Buccaneer: The Life of William DampierA Pirate of Exquisite Mind: Explorer, Naturalist, and Buccaneer: The Life of William Dampier

Darwin took his books aboard the Beagle. Swift and Defoe used his experiences as inspiration in writing Gulliver’s Travels and Robinson Crusoe. Captain Cook relied on his observations while voyaging around the world. Coleridge called him a genius and “a man of exquisite mind.” In the history of exploration, nobody has ventured further than Englishman William Dampier.
