Unlucky Pirate who became a Best-seller

Active selection:    
Unlucky Pirate who became a Best-seller.  Seventeenth Century William Dampier was a failure as a pirate - but the diary he wrote about his travels turned out to be a best-seller.  He tried to settle down (see inset) with the profits he made from his diary.  But the lure of the sea was too strong, and he set off again on yet another voyage.  Joining a band of ruffians to capture a Mexican town, Dampier found that all the inhabitants had fled taking all their valuables away with them.  Original artwork.
