Commodore (later Admiral) Anson's fateful circumnavigation of the globe in 1740 is the background to The Golden Ocean, Patrick O'Brian's first historical sea novel. Peter Palafox, son of a poor Irish parson, signs on as a midshipman, never before having seen a ship. Together with his lifelong friend Sean, Peter sets out to seek his fortune, embarking upon a journey of danger, disappointment, foreign lands, and excitement.
