Marryat, Frederick: The Pirate v1 5 jan 2009
(born July 10, 1792, London, Eng. — died Aug. 9, 1848, Langham, Norfolk) English naval officer and novelist. He served in the Royal Navy from age 14 until he retired in 1830 as a captain. He then began a series of adventure novels — including The King's Own (1830), Peter Simple (1834), and Poor Jack (1840) — marked by a lucid, direct narrative style, humour, and incidents drawn from his varied experience at sea. His Children of the New Forest (1847), set during the English Civil Wars, is a classic of children's literature.
This is a shorter but highly amusing work by Captain Marryat: Fantastic cover by Ravenne. Thanks again to her. She rocks!
