The ship explodes, leaving Zack Adams, a teenage medic, and his freed slave friend, Ben Williams, to drift aimlessly in the treacherous Mississippi River. They lodge on an island inhabited by a band of pirates and a tribe of Indians who hold them captive. Zack convinces the pirate leader, Captain Blaze, to spare their lives in exchange for services as a medic and personal servant. Fear penetrates every soul on the island, called Misery Island because it is haunted by ghosts that repeatedly attack as images of beasts and supernatural events. Eventually, Zack and Ben discover the ingenious source of the ghosts and use it to escape the island. Throughout the adventure, Zack struggles to mold his life on the premise of the beatitudes handed to him on the battlefield by his dying father.
