About the Author

Jacob Abbott (1803-79) was a prolific American author, writing histories, biographies, religious books for the general reader, and a few works in popular science. He wrote 180 books and was a coauthor or editor of 31 more.

Sir James Brooke (29 April 1803 - 11 June 1868) was a British adventurer whose exploits in the Malay Archipelago made him the first White Rajah of Sarawak. As governor of Sarawak, he vigorously suppressed piracy in the region.

Elbert Green Hubbard (June 19, 1856 - May 7, 1915) was an American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher. Among his many publications were the nine-volume work Little Journeys to the Homes of the Great. He died aboard the Lusitania, when it was sunk by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland on May 7, 1915.

Martin Hume (1847-1910), born Martin Andrew Sharp, was an English historian, long a resident in Spain.

Admiral of the Fleet Sir Henry Keppel (14 June 1809 - 17 January 1904) was a Royal Navy officer. His first command was largely spent off the coast of Spain, which was then in the midst of the First Carlist War. As commanding officer of the corvette HMS Dido on the East Indies and China Station he was deployed in operations during the First Opium War and in operations against Borneo pirates.

Mowbray Morris (1819-1874) was a newspaper executive and author of The First Afghan War published in 1878.

Theodore Roosevelt (October 27, 1858 - January 6, 1919), often referred to by his initials TR, was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and historian who served as the 26th President of the United States. A leader of the Republican Party, he was the spokesman for the Progressive Era. Before serving as America's 26th President, Roosevelt attended Harvard College, where he studied biology, boxed, and developed an interest in naval affairs. His first of many books, The Naval War of 1812 (1882), established his reputation as both a learned historian and a popular writer.
