Summary
A three-masted schooner traveling from America is struck by a storm off the coast of Peru forcing its men to jump ship and seek shelter. The crew must fend for themselves against multiple threats, both seen and unseen. Captain Philip Horn is the leader of the merchant-vessel, Castor, which carries multiple passengers and valuable cargo. When the ship is slammed by a violent storm, it is severely damaged and floats along the South American coast. Horn's crew is able to salvage a portion of provisions but not enough for the long-term. When investigating the land, they discover hidden treasures and encounter fierce obstacles including pirates. The Adventures of Captain Horn was an extremely popular book upon its release. In fact, it was the third bestselling title of 1895. It's a thrilling survival story that's full of adventure, intrigue, romance and conflict
