"This book has been carefully edited and slightly abridged to meet the reading tastes of the Modern Boy." - From verso of title page. "This is the heroic story of Will Gilmore, who went to sea as a ship's boy and came back a captain in the Royal Navy - the story of a boy who won success and fame by his conduct and courage in the face of great danger. It is a tale of vigour and action, endurance and daring - a tale of sea-fights with the pirates of the West Indies and the Moors of Algiers, and of the great sea-battles against the French in the days when Nelson was a captain. In this fine historical novel - the last he wrote - G.A. Henty had brought a colourful age back to life and told a story packed with thrills, excitement, and superb heroism."
