David Elliott. A Cornish Story

Author: C. E. Irvine
Publisher: J. F. Shaw and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

            Nothing delights the average British boy like "a sail" or clamoring about among the various small craft and "yarning" with the fishermen on the beach. In reading this story of Cornish fisher folk, he may fancy he is by the sea; or he may mentally bear a hand in saving the crew of the "Nancy" from a watery grave. Some of the "hair breadth" escapes seascapes &c. may be true; but all that is said about the great salvation is true.
