Every page offers excitement, from vivid tales of heroic naval battles and dangerous journeys of exploration to the thrilling stories of castaways and smugglers. The astonishing variety of works includes The Raft of Odysseus, by Homer; Hans Christian Andersen s The Mermaid ; The Specksioneer, by Elizabeth Gaskell; Washington Irving's The Phantom Island ; and Rounding Cape Horn, by Herman Melville.
