Book Description
Was sir Francis Drake a rabid anti-papist, a state-sponsored terrorist and slaver? Or was he the embodiment of English sang-froid, an empire-builder and hero? He was certainly the most dashing of the many ambitious seamen to serve Queen Elizabeth I, in an agr when the world seemed there for the taking. For a God-fearing Protestant of good yeoman stock, turning the high seas into an English lake seemed nothing less than a birthright – especially if the only people in one’s way were Catholics. In this new biography, Stephen Coote shows how Drake deliberately and skillfully fashioned himself into the very image of the English Protestant hero – the little man who took on the might of Spain.
