Description
(2001 Keith Matthews Prize Winner)Sponsored by the Canadian Nautical Research Society, James McDermott’s biography of the swashbuckling Martin Frobisher is a highly entertaining account of the willful sea-commander who served Elizabeth I while at the same time pursuing his own interests as a would-be privateer and pirate. Not only is this a portrait of an adventurous and turbulent career, it is an illumination of the maritime enterprises of 16th-century England, when the constantly changing goals of the Elizabethan age resulted in the often violent convergence of military officers, felons, and merchants on the high seas. With an impartial eye to Frobisher’s popular reputation as a hero, McDermott, a leading authority on the famed adventurer, offers an account of a man who was brave but flawed, who courageously resisted the Spanish Armada, and whose lifelong pursuit of wealth and glory defined him as a man.
