"From the time he joins the crew of His Majesty's sloop "Harpy", there is not a dull moment in the life of Mr Midshipman Easy. His early adventures in charge of a small crew in a cutter which lead to the capture of a large Spanish merchantman, soon to be followed by the mutiny of drunken sailors inflamed to a frenzy, are enough to whet the appetite for the exciting incidents which follow in quick succession."
