A Saga of the Seas by Kenneth Grahame

This story was first published in 1898 at a time when England was a great sea power and the average boy knew more about ships and their weaponry than a modern child knows about a video game console.
Our young hero outfits a schooner, selects a crew, hunts polar bears on an iceberg, battles a pirate ship and takes its treasure, rescues a princess, captures a French frigate, and returns in time for tea. All this without leaving his room. Pure imagination.
