A sharply written tale of adventure on the seas, the story of The Phantom Ship will grip the reader from the outset, drawing one into the vibrant world of Captain Marryat’s imagination. It is the story of one Phillip Vanderdecken and his quest to release his father from an eternity spent commanding the Flying Dutchman. But it is still more than that. From the writer who inspired Herman Melville to take to the seas, this is an exciting work which combines the thrill of the narrative chase with an examination of the theme of religious tolerance, which has possibly a greater resonance today.

About the Author:

Captain Frederick Marryat, novelist and naval officer, was born in London in 1792. Following a long career at sea, he turned to literature, where his work helped to forge the tradition of the sea-faring novel. Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf and Herman Melville have all professed their admiration of his work.

Review:

". . . [Marryat's] greatness is undeniable" -- Joseph Conrad

"Marryat has the power to set us in the midst of ships and men and sea and sky all vivid, credible, authentic." -- Virginia Woolf

"This was Marryat's navy, his world, and no one brings it to us with greater authenticity." -- Alexander Kent

"When all your Patrick O'Brians are out, recommend Marryat." --Library Journal
