Roving has always been, and still is, my ruling passion, the joy of my

heart, the very sunshine of my existence. In childhood, in boyhood, and

in man's estate I have been a rover; not a mere rambler among the woody

glens and upon the hill-tops of my own native land, but an enthusiastic

rover throughout the length and breadth of the wide, wide world.

It was a wild, black night of howling storm, the night on which I was

born on the foaming bosom of the broad Atlantic Ocean. My father was a

sea-captain; my grandfather was a sea-captain; my great-grandfather had

been a marine. Nobody could tell positively what occupation _his_

father had followed; but my dear mother used to assert that he had been

a midshipman, whose grandfather, on the mother's side, had been an

admiral in the Royal Navy. At any rate, we knew that as far back as our

family could be traced, it had been intimately connected with the great

watery waste. Indeed, this was the case on both sides of the house; for

my mother always went to sea with my father on his long voyages, and so

spent the greater part of her life upon the water.

Thus it was, I suppose, that I came to inherit a roving disposition.

Soon after I was born, my father, being old, retired from a seafaring

life, purchased a small cottage in a fishing village on the west coast

of England, and settled down to spend the evening of his life on the

shores of that sea which had for so many years been his home. It was

not long after this that I began to show the roving spirit that dwelt

within me. For some time past my infant legs had been gaining strength,

so that I came to be dissatisfied with rubbing the skin off my chubby

knees by walking on them, and made many attempts to stand up and walk

like a man--all of which attempts, however, resulted in my sitting down

violently and in sudden surprise. One day I took advantage of my dear

mother's absence to make another effort; and, to my joy, I actually

succeeded in reaching the doorstep, over which I tumbled into a pool of

muddy water that lay before my father's cottage door. Ah, how vividly I

remember the horror of my poor mother when she found me sweltering in

the mud amongst a group of cackling ducks, and the tenderness with which

she stripped off my dripping clothes and washed my dirty little body!

From this time forth my rambles became more frequent and, as I grew

older, more distant, until at last I had wandered far and near on the

shore and in the woods around our humble dwelling, and did not rest

content until my father bound me apprentice to a coasting-vessel and let

me go to sea.

For some years I was happy in visiting the seaports, and in coasting

along the shores, of my native land. My Christian name was Ralph; and

my comrades added to this the name of Rover, in consequence of the

passion which I always evinced for travelling. Rover was not my real

name; but as I never received any other, I came at last to answer to it

as naturally as to my proper name. And as it is not a bad one, I see no

good reason why I should not introduce myself to the reader as Ralph

Rover. My shipmates were kind, good-natured fellows, and they and I got

on very well together. They did, indeed, very frequently make game of

and banter me, but not unkindly; and I overheard them sometimes saying

that Ralph Rover was a "queer, old-fashioned fellow." This, I must

confess, surprised me much; and I pondered the saying long, but could

come at no satisfactoryconclusion as to that wherein my

old-fashionedness lay. It is true I was a quiet lad, and seldom spoke

except when spoken to. Moreover, I never could understand the jokes of

my companions even when they were explained to me, which dulness in

apprehension occasioned me much grief. However, I tried to make up for

it by smiling and looking pleased when I observed that they were

laughing at some witticism which I had failed to detect. I was also

very fond of inquiring into the nature of things and their causes, and

often fell into fits of abstraction while thus engaged in my mind. But

in all this I saw nothing that did not seem to be exceedingly natural,

and could by no means understand why my comrades should call me "an

old-fashioned fellow."

Now, while engaged in the coasting trade I fell in with many seamen who

had travelled to almost every quarter of the globe; and I freely confess

that my heart glowed ardently within me as they recounted their wild

adventures in foreign lands--the dreadful storms they had weathered, the

appalling dangers they had escaped, the wonderful creatures they had

seen both on the land and in the sea, and the interesting lands and

strange people they had visited. But of all the places of which they

told me, none captivated and charmed my imagination so much as the Coral

Islands of the Southern Seas. They told me of thousands of beautiful,

fertile islands that had been formed by a small creature called the

coral insect, where summer reigned nearly all the year round, where the

trees were laden with a constantharvest of luxuriant fruit, where the

climate was almost perpetually delightful; yet where, strange to say,

men were wild, bloodthirsty savages, excepting in those favoured isles

to which the Gospel of our Saviour had been conveyed. These exciting

accounts had so great an effect upon my mind that, when I reached the

age of fifteen, I resolved to make a voyage to the South Seas.

I had no little difficulty, at first, in prevailing on my dear parents

to let me go; but when I urged on my father that he would never have

become a great captain had he remained in the coasting trade, he saw the

truth of what I said and gave his consent. My dear mother, seeing that

my father had made up his mind, no longer offered opposition to my

wishes. "But, oh Ralph!" she said on the day I bade her adieu, "come

back soon to us, my dear boy; for we are getting old now, Ralph, and may

not have many years to live."

I will not take up my readers' time with a minute account of all that

occurred before I took my final leave of my dear parents. Suffice it to

say that my father placed me under the charge of an old messmate of his

own, a merchant captain, who was on the point of sailing to the South

Seas in his own ship, the _Arrow_. My mother gave me her blessing and a

small Bible; and her last request was that I would never forget to read

a chapter every day and say my prayers, which I promised, with tears in

my eyes, that I would certainly do.

Soon afterwards I went on board the _Arrow_, which was a fine, large

ship, and set sail for the islands of the Pacific Ocean.




It was a bright, beautiful, warm day when our ship spread her canvas to

the breeze and sailed for the regions of the south. Oh, how my heart

bounded with delight as I listened to the merry chorus of the sailors

while they hauled at the ropes and got in the anchor! The captain

shouted; the men ran to obey; the noble ship bent over to the breeze,

and the shore gradually faded from my view; while I stood looking on,

with a kind of feeling that the whole was a delightful dream.

The first thing that struck me as being different from anything I had

yet seen during my short career on the sea, was the hoisting of the

anchor on deck and lashing it firmly down with ropes, as if we had now

bid adieu to the land for ever and would require its services no more.

"There, lass!" cried a broad-shouldered jack-tar, giving the fluke of

the anchor a hearty slap with his hand after the housing was

completed--"there, lass, take a good nap now, for we sha'n't ask you to

kiss the mud again for many a long day to come!"

And so it was. That anchor did not "kiss the mud" for many long days

afterwards; and when at last it did, it was for the last time!

There were a number of boys in the ship, but two of them were my special

favourites. Jack Martin was a tall, strapping, broad-shouldered youth

of eighteen, with a handsome, good-humoured, firm face. He had had a

good education, was clever and hearty and lion-like in his actions, but

mild and quiet in disposition. Jack was a general favourite, and had a

peculiar fondness for me. My other companion was Peterkin Gay. He was

little, quick, funny, decidedly mischievous, and about fourteen years

old. But Peterkin's mischief was almost always harmless, else he could

not have been so much beloved as he was.

"Hallo, youngster!" cried Jack Martin, giving me a slap on the shoulder

the day I joined the ship, "come below and I'll show you your berth.

You and I are to be messmates; and I think we shall be good friends, for

I like the look o' you."

Jack was right. He and I, and Peterkin afterwards, became the best and

staunchest friends that ever tossed together on the stormy waves.

I shall say little about the first part of our voyage. We had the usual

amount of rough weather and calm; also we saw many strange fish rolling

in the sea, and I was greatly delighted one day by seeing a shoal of

flying-fish dart out of the water and skim through the air about a foot

above the surface. They were pursued by dolphins, which feed on them;

and one flying-fish, in its terror, flew over the ship, struck on the

rigging, and fell upon the deck. Its wings were just fins elongated;

and we found that they could never fly far at a time, and never mounted

into the air like birds, but skimmed along the surface of the sea. Jack

and I had it for dinner, and found it remarkably good.

When we approached Cape Horn, at the southern extremity of America, the

weather became very cold and stormy, and the sailors began to tell

stories about the furious gales and the dangers of that terrible cape.

"Cape Horn," said one, "is the most horribleheadland I ever doubled.

I've sailed round it twice already, and both times the ship was a'most

blow'd out o' the water."

"I've been round it once," said another; "an' that time the sails were

split, and the ropes frozen in the blocks so that they wouldn't work,

and we wos all but lost."

"An' I've been round it five times," cried a third; "an' every time wos

wuss than another, the gales wos so tree-mendous!"

"And I've been round it, no times at all," cried Peterkin with an

impudent wink in his eye, "an' that time I wos blow'd inside out!"

Nevertheless we passed the dreaded cape without much rough weather, and

in the course of a few weeks afterwards were sailing gently, before a

warm tropical breeze, over the Pacific Ocean. Thus we proceeded on our

voyage--sometimes bounding merrily before a fair breeze; at other times

floating calmly on the glassy wave and fishing for the curious

inhabitants of the deep, all of which, although the sailors thought

little of them, were strange, and interesting, and very wonderful to me.

At last we came among the Coral Islands of the Pacific; and I shall

never forget the delight with which I gazed--when we chanced to pass

one--at the pure white, dazzling shores, and the verdant palm-trees,

which looked bright and beautiful in the sunshine. And often did we

three long to be landed on one, imagining that we should certainly find

perfect happiness there! Our wish was granted sooner than we expected.

One night, soon after we entered the tropics, an awful storm burst upon

our ship. The first squall of wind carried away two of our masts, and

left only the foremast standing. Even this, however, was more than

enough, for we did not dare to hoist a rag of sail on it. For five days

the tempest raged in all its fury. Everything was swept off the decks,

except one small boat. The steersman was lashed to the wheel lest he

should be washed away, and we all gave ourselves up for lost. The

captain said that he had no idea where we were, as we had been blown far

out of our course; and we feared much that we might get among the

dangerous coral reefs which are so numerous in the Pacific. At daybreak

on the sixth morning of the gale we saw land ahead; it was an island

encircled by a reef of coral, on which the waves broke in fury. There

was calm water within this reef, but we could see only one narrow

opening into it. For this opening we steered; but ere we reached it a

tremendous wave broke on our stern, tore the rudder completely off, and

left us at the mercy of the winds and waves.

"It's all over with us now, lads!" said the captain to the men. "Get

the boat ready to launch; we shall be on the rocks in less than


The men obeyed in gloomy silence, for they felt that there was little

hope of so small a boat living in such a sea.

"Come, boys," said Jack Martin, in a grave tone, to me and Peterkin, as

we stood on the quarter-deck awaiting our fate--"come, boys; we three

shall stick together. You see it is impossible that the little boat can

reach the shore, crowded with men. It will be sure to upset, so I mean

rather to trust myself to a large oar. I see through the telescope that

the ship will strike at the tail of the reef, where the waves break into

the quiet water inside; so if we manage to cling to the oar till it is

driven over the breakers, we may perhaps gain the shore. What say you?

Will you join me?"

We gladly agreed to follow Jack, for he inspired us with confidence--

although I could perceive, by the sad tone of his voice, that he had

little hope; and indeed, when I looked at the white waves that lashed

the reef and boiled against the rocks as if in fury, I felt that there

was but a step between us and death. My heart sank within me; but at

that moment my thoughts turned to my beloved mother, and I remembered

those words, which were among the last that she said to me: "Ralph, my

dearest child, always remember, in the hour of danger, to look to your

Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He alone is both able and willing to

save your body and your soul." So I felt much comforted when I thought


The ship was now very near the rocks. The men were ready with the boat,

and the captain beside them giving orders, when a tremendous wave came

towards us. We three ran towards the bow to lay hold of our oar, and

had barely reached it when the wave fell on the deck with a crash like

thunder. At the same moment the ship struck; the foremast broke off

close to the deck and went over the side, carrying the boat and men

along with it. Our oar got entangled with the wreck, and Jack seized an

axe to cut it free; but owing to the motion of the ship, he missed the

cordage and struck the axe deep into the oar. Another wave, however,

washed it clear of the wreck. We all seized hold of it, and the next

instant we were struggling in the wild sea. The last thing I saw was

the boat whirling in the surf, and all the sailors tossed into the

foaming waves. Then I became insensible.

On recovering from my swoon I found myself lying on a bank of soft

grass, under shelter of an overhanging rock, with Peterkin on his knees

by my side, tenderly bathing my temples with water, and endeavouring to

stop the blood that flowed from a wound in my forehead.




There is a strange and peculiarsensationexperienced in recovering from

a state of insensibility which is almost indescribable: a sort of

dreamy, confused consciousness; a half-waking, half-sleeping condition,

accompanied with a feeling of weariness, which, however, is by no means

disagreeable. As I slowly recovered, and heard the voice of Peterkin

inquiring whether I felt better, I thought that I must have overslept

myself, and should be sent to the masthead for being lazy; but before I

could leap up in haste, the thought seemed to vanish suddenly away, and

I fancied that I must have been ill. Then a balmy breeze fanned my

cheek; and I thought of home, and the garden at the back of my father's

cottage with its luxuriant flowers, and the sweet-scented honeysuckle

that my dear mother trained so carefully upon the trellised porch. But

the roaring of the surf put these delightful thoughts to flight, and I

was back again at sea, watching the dolphins and the flying-fish, and

reefing topsails off the wild and stormy Cape Horn. Gradually the roar

of the surf became louder and more distinct. I thought of being wrecked
