Marryat, Frederick: Masterman Ready v1 8 jan 2009
This book is one of the most well known in English literature, having been written by Marryat in his later phase, when he wrote mostly for children.
The Seagrave family (how aptly named) are on a stout ship en route for Australia. In a storm the ship is struck by lightning, set on fire, and dismasted. The crew make off in the ship's boats. and the family are abandoned on board the sinking ship, along with an elderly seaman, Masterman Ready. But she doesn't sink, instead drifting to the shelter of an uninhabited island, where they scramble ashore, and set up a habitation. How they get on, what ordeals they have to endure, and how they are eventually rescued, is the substance of the book.
This book has already been uploaded in LRF, so I won't upload that format again. My version is illustrated, has a beautiful cover by Ravenne and will be available in Mobi, Imp and Epub.
