Marryat, Frederick: The Little Savage v1 22 dec 2008
Captain Frederick Marryat was born July 10 1792, and died August 8 1848. He retired from the British navy in 1828 in order to devote himself to writing. In the following 20 years he wrote 26 books, many of which are among the very best of English literature, and some of which are still in print.
Marryat had an extraordinary gift for the invention of episodes in his stories. He says somewhere that when he sat down for the day’s work, he never knew what he was going to write. He certainly was a literary genius.
“The Little Savage” was published in 1848, the twenty-sixth book to flow from Marryat’s pen. It was completed after his death by a member of his family. It is intended for children, and its religious overtones are in contrast to Marryat’s other works. He was far from irreligious, but this book is definitely in a different style.
This e-book was transcribed by Nick Hodson.
PS: I have used the cover of a Classics Illustrated Comicbook for this one!
