From the cover: “Cannibal was an old, all but worn-out barquentine, though to her Master and Captain, David Bell, and others who loved the ways of sail, she still had beauty. When he put out from Tahiti in 1927 with a cargo of copra and a full complement of passengers in her four cabins, the Captain pinned his faith on his ship and on seamanship. Before long, and not without reason, there were those aboard who were saying he had pushed his luck too far.”
