A Joss Recording
From the coral reefs of the Barbados to the great sea battle with the Spanish Armada, this vibrant novel captures the daring spirit of Elizabethan adventurers who sailed with Sir Francis Drake.
Charles Kingsley wrote not only novels of action and romance, but stories for children (WATER BABIES) as well. His work still pulses with life and vitality.

Charles Kingsley was a professor of history, a novelist, and a parish priest. He wrote about Greek mythology and evolution _€" he was one of the first intellectuals to praise Darwin. His novels' chief strength is their vivid natural description. Kingsley was associated with the Christian Socialism movement and with the phrase "muscular Christianity," which he detested. A remark of his denigrating Catholic clergy led to John Henry Newman's Apologia Pro Vita Sua.
