"[The series shows] a joy in language that jumps from every page....You're in for a wonderful voyage."—Cutler Durkee, People

Baker & Taylor
After surviving a great typhoon in the South China Sea, Captain Jack Aubrey, ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin, and the crew of the HMS Diane attempt to rebuild their ship to leave the small desert island where they have been shipwrecked

Norton Pub
Shipwrecked on a remote island in the Dutch East Indies, Captain Aubrey, surgeon and secret intelligence agent Stephen Maturin, and the crew of the Diane fashion a schooner from the wreck. A vicious attack by Malay pirates is repulsed, but the makeshift vessel burns, and they are truly marooned. Their escape from this predicament is one that only the whimsy and ingenuity of Patrick O'Brian—or Stephen Maturin—could devise.In command now of a new ship, the Nutmeg, Aubrey pursues his interrupted mission. The dreadful penal colony in New South Wales, harrowingly described, is the backdrop to a diplomatic crisis provoked by Maturin's Irish temper, and to a near-fatal encounter with the wildlife of the Australian outback.
