"The Wreck of the Grosvenor? tells of the adventures of Edward Royle, the second mate on a sailing ship travelling from England to South America in the nineteenth century.

With a hard-hearted captain and a mutinous crew, this was never going to be an easy voyage. When Royle spots a vessel foundering at sea, the trouble really starts and he is forced to chose between duty and conscience.

"The Wreck of the Grosvenor? is perhaps William Clark Russell?s most famous book. John Sutherland, Emeritus Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London described this as ?the most popular mid-Victorian melodrama of adventure and heroism at sea?.

This new edition from Solis Press of the 1877 bestseller has been completely revised and includes illustrations from the first US publication. The book also features a section about the author and his life, written specially for this edition.
