Tales of the Enchanted Islands of the Atlantic

The sea has always been, by the mystery of its horizon, the fury of its storms, and the variableness of the atmosphere above it, the foreordained land of romance. In all ages and with all sea-going races there has always been something especially fascinating about an island amid the ocean. It's very existence has for all explorers an air of magic. The order of the tales in the present work follows roughly the order of development, giving first the legends which kept near the European shore, and then those which, like St. Brandan's or Antillia, were assigned to the open sea or, like Norumbega o...

The Heir of Kilfinnan A Tale of the Shore and Ocean

First Page:

The Heir of Kilfinnan, by W.H.G. Kingston.

The book opens with our hero, Dermot O'Neil, out fishing in a small boat that he usually went with his widowed mother in. The catch being good he went up to the nearby castle, the abode of the Earl Kilfinnan, where he easily sells his fish, and is asked to come back with more the next day. Being a good looking and well mannered 12 year old, he wins the admiration of the Earl's daughter and her cousin, who offer to teach him to read. When the...

Under the Meteor Flag Log of a Midshipman during the French Revolutionary War

Under the Meteor Flag Log of a Midshipman during the French Revolutionary War

By Harry Collingwood This is well written and full of action. The formula is very much the same as Kingston's gales, shipwrecks, rafts, hand to hand battles, and above all, a super smart midshipman who doesn't even shave yet, but who has influence in the Navy.

It is a good yarn, but there are a couple of things I do not like about it. One is the habit of giving people surnames that are also parts of the ship. I...

Flood Tide –by: Sara Ware Bassett

Willie Spence may have been a bit eccentric by most standards, but he had a knack for creating gadgets in his small workshop at his home on Cape Cod. Whenever he was 'ketched' by an 'idee' he had to see it to completion, and always did. His small cottage on the Cape had become a labyrinth of string and wires tacked here and there so as to make life a bit challenging for his housekeeper Celestina. But she and most everyone else among the coastal towns and villages loved the old man for all his eccentricities as Willie spent his waning years just waiting for his ship to come in.
