Post Ballantyne, Robert Michael: Gascoyne v1 2. feb 2009

Gascoyne, the Sandal-Wood Trader: A Tale of the Pacific
(1864)
A novel by R M Ballantyne


Quote:
As soon as the anchor touched the ground, the captain ordered a small boat to be lowered, and, leaping into it with two men, rowed toward the shore.

The captain of the schooner was one of those men who seem to have been formed for the special purpose of leading and commanding their fellows. He was not only unusually tall and powerful but he possessed voice whose softest tones riveted attention, and when it thundered forth commands in the fiercest storms, it inspired confidence heard it. His eyes were of that indescribable blue color which can exhibit either passion or tenderness intensely.

"Have you brought your kit with you, John?" inquired the captain, as the little boat shot over the smooth waters of the bay. "I do not mean to take you aboard again."
Original cover, but only one illustration. Great read!
