The Pirate is a stirring tale of adventure on the high seas. Full of action and excitement, it is a ripping yarn from the acknowledged pioneer of the sea-novel.
The Three Cutters brings together three disparate sets of seafarers aboard three different vessels: an aristocratic yachting party, officers of the customs service and a crew of smugglers. Infused with the author's love for the sea, this is a thrilling story of cat and mouse off the English coast.

About the Author:

Captain Frederick Marryat is probably one of the most important authors to write historical naval fiction books. Firstly he was one of the first authors to write such books and they must be considered as some of the most authentic as he actually served in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. He first served aboard Lord Cochrane's HMS Imperieuse when she attacked French and Spanish interests in the Western Mediterranean. Captain Frederick Marryat (10 July 1792 – 9 August 1848) was a British Royal Navy officer, novelist, and an acquaintance of Charles Dickens, noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story. He is now known particularly for the semi-autobiographical novel Mr. Midshipman Easy and his children's novel The Children of the New Forest, and for a widely used system of maritime flag signalling, known as Marryat's Code.

Synopsis:

From the legendary adventures of Robinson Crusoe to the tribulations and trials of C.S. Forester's "Horatio Hornblower", the great characters of the sea-faring novel have long been etched into the national consciousness. One of the authors whose work stood on the prow amidst the first breaking waves of this genre was Captain Frederick Marryat. Based largely on personal experience of a long and highly decorated career in the Royal Navy, his work has an immediacy and authenticity that is hard to match. "The Pirate & The Three Cutters" is a collection of two of his novels, and two of the finest examples of tales that will delight the imagination.
