1810: The Royal Navy of Great Britain is all that stands between Napoleon and absolute domination of Europe. Royal Marine Captain Thomas Pennywhistle is assigned to HMS Active, part of a small squadron of frigates in the Adriatic Sea. It's considered a sideshow theatre of the war, but on those waters, one of the greatest naval battles of the age will be fought. As a Marine, Pennywhistle fights on land and sea. He leads his handful of men first against a battalion of Napoleon's Army and finally against the French fleet in all its terrible grandeur, always leading from the front, fighting not only with weapons but by using his wit - cool and analytical where others are blinded by passion. Pennywhistle's own passions will be aroused by the beautiful and fiercely independent Carlotta, and he will be tested by conflicts that make him question his deepest principles. HMS Active will take Pennywhistle's measure. Will he measure up? "This is not just a rousing, edge-of-your seat nautical tale; it is also a powerfully passionate and winningly romantic love story. It is a pleasure to see a heroine who is well rounded, not a mere cipher who exists simply to be put in jeopardy and then rescued. The chemistry between hero and heroine is wonderful to behold." -Sandi Lindstrom

This is the first publication of a book by Arthur Ransome, originally commissioned in 1910. The manuscript, nearly complete, was sequestered by Ransome's wife in 1914, and he never saw it again. It came to light only by chance, long after his death. Arthur Ransome here gives an exceptionally personal and perceptive account of the strengths and weaknesses of Stevenson as man and writer. Writing when most books on Stevenson were biographical or merely adulatory, he intended his to be the first 'critical study'. Here Ransome wrestles to identify techniques that later underpin his Swallows and Amazons. Moreover, this is the only manuscript first draft of a work by Ransome to survive, and as such provides a unique insight into his working methods. The appendices include all other extant material relating to Stevenson by Ransome, from his very first story (written at the age of eight, and hitherto published only privately) to working notes and articles in literary periodicals. The editor's introduction gives an account of the history of the manuscript's development, disappearance, and rediscovery, and adds a new chapter to the tumultuous story of Ransome's first marriage, early career, and escape to Russia.
