Overview

After returning to England, Dampier made two more voyages as a privateer, capturing booty worth about £200,000 on the second venture. His popular book, A New Voyage Round the World, was published in 1697. One of his ship's logs contains the earliest known European description of a typhoon.

April the 17th 1681, about ten o'clock in the morning we embarked into our launch and canoes, making for the river of Santa Maria. We were in number 44 white men who bore arms, a Spanish Indian who bore arms also; and two Moskito Indians who always bear arms amongst the privateers and are much valued by them for striking fish, and turtle or tortoise, and manatee or sea-cow; and five slaves taken in the South Seas, who fell to our share.
