(From the publisher):
Maritime legend holds that a spectral ship, The Flying Dutchman, haunts the seas around the Cape of Good Hope. Philip Vanderdecken's father is the captain of that ship, condemned to sail and torment sailors until the Day of Judgment. Marryat's take on the legend, The Phantom Ship, is the tale of Philip Vanderdecken's search for his cursed father and the Dutchman's ghostly crew.
