Frederick Marryat was a Navy officer and a novelist who lived in the period 1792-1848. His personal experience of long sea voyages inspired him to write sea stories. He is therefore considered to be an early pioneer of those stories, which combine sea adventures, humor and incidents. He wrote many children’s novels as well. Some of his best known works are ”The Children of the New Forest”, ”The King’s Own” and ”The White Wolf”.
