Abstract:
"Horatio Hornblower is only seventeen when he joins His Majesty's Royal Navy as a Midshipman. He's dangerously unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen, but he's saved by his quick, mathematical mind and keen eye ... This is where it all begins--where young Hornblower gets his sea legs and shows the makings of the legend he will later become."--Jacket.
