In this seminal story of naval life during the Napoleonic wars, Frederick Marryat's young hero embarks upon a life at sea and finds it to be a rough school indeed. Simple's trials and triumphs, alongside his faithful mentor, Terence O'Brien, mirror Marryat's personal experience; from the hand-to-hand combat of cutting-out missions to the devastating hurricane off St. Pierre and the mutiny aboard the Rattlesnake. Peter Simple is a towering tale from the great age of sail, filled with keen wit, vivid characters, and gripping adventure.
