Publisher's Summary

Ardita Farnum is a beautiful but spoiled and rebellious young woman on a yachting trip to Florida with her uncle. On the verge of throwing her life away on a disreputable playboy, she is captured by pirates and becomes enamored with their captain. She wonders if she has she met her match.

This charming early short story, first published in 1920 for the Saturday Evening Post, demonstrates F Scott Fitzgerald's rapid development as a versatile writer of fiction. It is the first story that presents Fitzgerald's recurrent theme of a heroine who is won by her lover's performance of an extraordinary deed. It was dedicated to his wife, Zelda, who was also 19 years old at the time.
