Buccaneer, three times circumnavigator, explorer and naturalist, William Dampier (1651-1715) published A New Voyage Around the World in 1697. With accounts of daring privateering exploits as well as descriptions of exotic lands such as the Galapagos Islands, Guam and 'Terra Australis', this selection from A New Voyage shows why it created such a sensation among Dampier's contemporaries. From the Eyewitness Accounts series.
