About the Book

When Antonio Zeppa left England, he had merely engaged in actions that others would casually refer to as "follies" of youth. His abrupt, ill-controlled anger was, however, significantly influenced by tyranny, and now the lowest rung of the ladder had been reached. He discovered himself chained, bleeding, and experiencing terrible pain at his chest. Orley's mother made an effort to comfort him in his sorrow since she was aware that her husband would rather perish than join the South Sea's barbarians. Many of the villagers saw shipwrecked people as victims with no right to their hospitality but as something to be slaughtered and eaten instead.The unfortunate guy participated in the fatal battle with that natural, silent resolve of purpose, and neither a roar nor a cry came from his constricted lips. Because he swayed back and forth in his fruitless attempts to tear off the limb with an amount of force that appeared more than human, the sickness under which he toiled had likely reached its peak. The personal biography of Rosco the pirate and the record of his many crimes were among the papers that the captain misplaced and lost.

About Author

R. M. Ballantyne

R. M. Ballantyne was a Scottish writer of young adult literature who produced more than a hundred books between 24 April 1825 and 8 February 1894. He was also a skilled artist; some of his watercolors were on display at the Royal Scottish Academy. The ninth of ten children and youngest son of Alexander Thomson Ballantyne (1776-1847) and his wife Anne, Ballantyne was born in Edinburgh on April 24, 1825. (1786-1855). Robert's uncle James Ballantyne (1772-1833) was Sir Walter Scott's printer, and Alexander worked as a newspaper editor and printer in the family business "Ballantyne & Co" based at Paul's Works on the Canongate. The family is documented to have resided at 20 Fettes Row in Edinburgh's northern New Town in 1832-1833. The Ballantyne printing company collapsed the next year with debts of £130,000 as a result of a UK-wide banking crisis, which caused a decrease in the family's finances. Ballantyne moved to Canada at the age of 16 and worked for the Hudson's Bay Company for five years. He traveled by canoe and sleigh to the regions that are now the provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec to trade with the local First Nations and Native Americans for furs; these experiences served as the inspiration for his book The Young Fur Traders.
