Young Robert Blood and his mother, Ann, live in Port Royal in the Caribbean. The young Blood is inspired by the legend of his late father, the notorious Peter Blood, a surgeon who was sold into slavery and became a pirate.

Robert and his pirates are granted pardons because of their bravery, as his father also was pardoned for turning on the enemies of England. A free man who has had an adventuresome excursion into piracy, Robert decides to settle down with Abbigail and become a ...
