It does not appear that there was another edition for sixty years, by which time the author had been dead for 35 years. It is also a very good book of his genre, with lots of battle, murder, and sudden death.
It deals with the adventures of a young boy who joins the Royal Navy as a midshipman in the care of his uncle.
Most of the action takes place in the Mediterranean, even so far as the Ionian sea, where he visits Zante (now called Zakynthos), Cephalonia, and even Corfu. Of course practically everybody appearing in the book is slain, except the young hero, who survives all. If you want to read, or listen to, a rattling good yarn, try this one. ________________________________________________________________________ SALT WATER, THE SEA LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NEIL D’ARCY THE MIDSHIPMAN, BY W H G KINGSTON.
