A reissue of Steinbeck's first novel, released for distribution to members of the United States Armed Services during World War II. Cup of Gold: A life of Sir Henry Morgan, Buccaneer, with Occasional Reference to History (1929) was John Steinbeck's first novel, a work of historical fiction based loosely on the life and death of privateer Henry Morgan. It centres on Morgan's assault and sacking of Panama City (the Cup of Gold), and the woman fairer than the sun reputed to be found there. Admiral Sir Henry Morgan (Harri Morgan in Welsh; ca. 1635 25 August 1688) was an Admiral of the English Royal Navy, a privateer, and a pirate who made a name for himself during activities in the Caribbean, primarily raiding Spanish settlements. He earned a reputation as one of the most notorious and successful privateers in history, and one of the most ruthless among those active along the Spanish Main.
