About Author

Frank T. Bullen

The British author Frank Thomas Bullen was born on April 5, 1857, in Paddington, London. He died on March 1, 1915. Bullen's parents were poor, and he went to a dame school and Westbourne school in Paddington for a few years. His aunt, who was watching over him, died when he was nine years old. After that, he quit school and got a job as an errand boy. In 1869, he went to sea and traveled all over the world in a number of roles, such as second mate on the Harbinger and chief mate on the Day Dawn, working for Capt. John R. H. Ward jun. when the Day Dawn lost its mast and became disabled in 1879. He spent 15 years of his life at sea, starting when he was only 12 years old. He later wrote about the hard times he went through: "I was beaten by a black boy as big as myself, and only a Frenchman stepped in to help me." In those days, boys on Geordie colliers or East Coast fishing smacks were often beaten until they went crazy and jumped overboard, or they were killed in the most brutal way possible. If they didn't come back, all that was needed was a line in the log saying that they had been washed or had fallen overboard.
