This carefully crafted ebook: "A MAN TO HIS MATE (Sea Adventure Classic)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Excerpt: "There was a fortune in sight. For gold, men forget the obligations of life and law in civilization; they revert to savage type, and their minds and actions are swayed by the primitive urge of lust. Treachery, selfishness, cruelty and crime breed from the shining particles even before they are in actual sight and touch. Rainey knew that. He had read many true yarns that had come down from the frozen North, in from the deserts and the mountains, tales of the mining records of the West." J. Allan Dunn (1872?1941) was one of the high-producing writers of the American pulp fiction. He first made a name for himself in pulp magazine Adventure. He was a specialist in South Sea stories, and pirate tales. His main genres were adventure and western, but he also wrote a number of detective stories.

A New Voyage Round the World by a Course Never Sailed Before

Daniel Defoe (1660?-1731) was a prolific English writer who became one of the first Western writers to write novels and turn them into a sought after literary genre. During his life, Defoe wrote more than 500 books, pamphlets and journals on topics as wide ranging as politics, crime, religion, psychology, supernatural events, and even economics.While those are all impressive accomplishments, Defoe's name has lived on through Robinson Crusoe, one of the first and finest novels ever written. The book is written as a fictional autobiography of Robinson Crusoe, a castaway who spends nearly 30 years on a tropical island, where he encounters all kinds of danger and adventures. Published in the early 18th century, the novel may have been inspired by a real Scottish castaway, Alexander Selkirk, who lived for nearly 5 years on a Pacific Island. That island's name has since been changed to Robinson Crusoe Island. Robinson Crusoe was a stark departure from the typical literature of the day, which was still based on ancient mythology, legends, and history.
