Captain Blood: His Odyssey (1922)
by Rafael Sabatini
Although Blood is a fictional character, much of the historical background of the novel is based on fact: the first part on Henry Pitman, a surgeon who tended the wounded Monmouth rebels and was sentenced to death by Judge Jeffreys. But his sentence was commuted to penal transportation to Barbados where he escaped and was captured by pirates.

The novel has been adapted into films numerous times, the best remembered being the 1935 film starring Errol Flynn. Audiobook available at librivox
