Martha Pemberton was the beautiful, impetuous daughter of a San Francisco shipbuilding tycoon. She longed for excitement and adventure ...all the things denied a "lady" in 1872. After a stormy affair with one seafaring man she married another, Captain Peter Dyke, who took her away to a South Seas honeymoon. Befriended by natives after her husband was killed by pirates, Martha eventually made her way back to California, with her lust for life undiminished.
