After just barely surviving the atrocious and brutal squall caused by my gluttonous crew, we found ourselves on the Laestrygonians (las-ter-GO-nee-ans). Laestrygonians, we learned, are a tribe of giants. Of course, we didnít realize that these giants inhabited the island until after we got there.With the main flotilla tied down in, what we thought was, a safe harbor and my ship not too far away, my men and I began to explore the inexplicable island. We had scarcely set foot off our ships before we discovered massive foot prints all over the beach. Within seconds of our discovery the Laestrygonians began hurling enormous rocks at the ships, ruining all but one ship and killing many men. My ship was too far away for them to hit. The residual men and I scurried to the last ship of twelve and sailed away as fast as the winds would carry us.
