Author: James Otis

"A Runaway Brig" is a sea tale, pure and simple, and that's where it strikes a boy's fancy. The reader can look out upon the wide shimmering sea as it flashes back the sunlight, and imagine himself afloat with Harry Vandyne, Walter Morse, Jim Libby and that old shell-back, Bob Brace, on the brig Bonita, which lands on one of the Bahama keys. Finally three strangers steal the craft, leaving the rightful owners to shift for themselves aboard a broken-down tug. The boys discover a mysterious document which enables them to find a buried treasure, then a storm comes on and the tug is stranded. At last a yacht comes in sight and the party with the treasure is taken off the lonely key. The most exacting youth is sure to be fascinated with this entertaining story.

A Narrative of the Death of Captain James Cook

2010.12.13

Author: David Samwell

Language: English

Published: 1786

Mr. Samwell's object is to prove that captain Cook did not lose his life in consequence of inattention, ralhness, or an unwarrantable contempt of the spirit of the islanders; but rom an unfortunate concurrence of circumstances, and the mistake of the gentleman who commanded the launch. The relation of the catastrophe differs in this respect, and in some other less important circumstances, from the narrative of captain King. Mr. Samwell thinks that the jealousy of the natives was not roused by the return of the ships; that the few people seen in the harbour was owing to accident, and the taboo was a necessary ceremony, before the renewal of the commercial and friendly connections.

Fighting in Cuban Waters

2010.11.13

(image)

or, Under Scilly on the Brooklyn

Author: Edward Stratemeyer

Language: English

Published: 1899

Walter Russell, brother to Larry and Ben, the respective heroes of the two preceding volumes of the series, finds his way to Boston, secures employment, enlists in the navy, and is assigned to the Brooklyn. Then follow intensely interesting chapters, telling of Commodore Schley, the idol of his men; the routine of the life of the "Jackies," and blockade and discovery of Cervera's fleet, followed by the memorable conflict of July 3rd. In point of information conveyed, "Fighting in Cuban Waters" stands high. The order of rank in the navy, and man-of-war life in detail, are cleverly and accurately presented, while historically the volume might serve as a work of reference for most of the events in Cuban waters from the destruction of the Maine to the beaching of the Spanish fleet.

A Lady's Captivity among Chinese Pirates in the Chinese Seas

2010.10.30

Author: Fanny Loviot

Language: English

Fanny Loviot sets out with her sister on a commercial speculation from Havre on the 30th of May 1832 bound for California. They touch at Rio Janeiro, and after many dangers, from which our authoress is never free throughout the volume, they reach San Francisco. A spirited picture is given of life in California; but owing to its dangers, Mademoiselle Fanny, leaving her elder sister behind, resolves to set out with one Madam Nelson on another commercial speculation to Canton, Macao, Hong-Kong, and Batavia. Her partner dies, and she at last arrives at Hong-Kong. All her hopes being thus disappointed, she resolves to return to California, and takes her passage in a Portuguese ship, the Caldera, under a Chilian flag and commanded by a Captain Rooney. After meeting with a typhoon they are boarded by pirates who strip the vessel, and force the Captain and his crew, our authoress and the only other passenger--Than Lingh, a Chinese merchant,--to submit to every indignity.

Sea-Hounds

Author: Lewis R. Freeman

Language: English

Published: 1919

Lieutenant Freeman was at the front for more than four years, part of the time on land as a freelance correspondent, and for a year and a half as the official writer-up for the British navy. In the latter capacity, the British navy sent him all over the world, and gave him a wonderful opportunity to learn things at first hand. He tells the best story yet written about the sinking of the Emden. He lived on battleships, destroyers, Hush ships, U-boats and mine sweepers, and spent a good deal of time on American destroyers. He has had better opportunities for writing about the British navy than any other man. For example, the Admiralty turned over only a few of the reports about the battle of Jutland to the public, but they gave all the reports to Lieutenant Freeman —an American who lived in Pasadena, California.
