Robertson, author of
“Masters of Men,” etc. With Frontispiece. 12mo. Cloth, $1.50.

The adventures and mysteries of sea life, the humors and strange complications possible in yachting, the inner tragedies of the foks’l, the delightful adventures of Finnegan in war, and the original developments in the course of true love at sea, are among the vivid pictures that make up a volume so vital in its interests and dramatic in its situations, so delightful in its quaint humor and so vigorous and stirring throughout, that it will be read by sea lovers for its full flavor of the sea, and by others as a refreshing tonic.
