Blurb: W. Clark Russell was born in New York in 1844 to English parents. His experiences in the British Merchant Marine provided an authentic backdrop for his acclaimed sea novels. Russell is highly regarded for his realistic portrayal of maritime life, and his harrowing account of the sailors' plight in The Wreck of the Grosvenor was very influential in the passage of reform laws to improve the lot of British merchant seamen.
