Most of the book deals with Morgan's early activities in the Caribbean and Central America. Sold into indentured servitude in England because his family fell out of favor politically, Henry Morgan ends up working as a slave on a plantation. He eventually escapes and falls in with a pretty incompetent bunch of pirates, gets captured, survives the tortures of the local Inquisition, falls in love with the daughter of the Spanish colonial governor, escapes again, and finally winds up leading his own band of pirates.
He goes on to sail as a privateer under a letter of marque from the King of England.
