Adam is selected to command a replica galleon to re-enact the voyage of the Spanish nobleman who originally founded the country of Yraguay. Even the navigation instruments are the same as the primitive ones of the 16th century. However, before leaving England Adam finds himself captured and thrown into an underground dungeon from which he must make a terrible escape. The voyage is dogged by bad weather and the attentions of a criminal gang. He must also face the attentions of a giant squid and the outbreak of a revolution in Yraguay.
