When I read this book I have a feeling that I read Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Only by a chance I got this beautiful book. This is the story of a boy who elevated himself in life by his honesty, hard work, compassion and grit. A must read for all young people to get inspired.
Wow. What a story. Sabatiny, Collingwood, Farnol and Kingston. England has produced such wonderful authors. I can live with their books. I don't need anything else in life.
I am a sea adventure fan and have read several Collingwood, Farnol and Sabatini stuff. But Kingston has his own style of descriptive writing. He will take you in to time giving every detail of Victorian scene and its sea life. I recommend his books for the sea lovers.
