Morpurgo dramatizes the perilous hours during which Drake's Golden Hinde was stranded on a reef off the coast of Indonesia, and asks what was really at the heart of Drake's violent quarrel with Fletcher, the ship's chaplain. As the modern world continues to plunder the 'infinite store' of the earth's riches, Morpurgo explores how our abusive relationship with the natural world began.
