Books Info:

The Riddle of the Sands free pdf Tempted by the idea of duck shooting, Carruthers joins his friend Davies on a yachting expedition in the Baltic. But Davies has more on his mind than killing fowl. As they navigate the waters and treacherous, shifting sands on board the Dulcibella, Carruthers learns the real reason behind their trip - and how the safety of Britain depends on it. The Riddle of the Sands is full of danger, double-crosses, and discoveries on which the fate of nations hangs by a thread.

About Erskine Childers

Robert Esrkine Childers published his only novel, The Riddle of the Sands, in 1903. In 1910 he resigned his post at the House of Commons in order to be free to work for the Irish cause, and the following year published The Framework of Home Rule, advocating full dominion status for Ireland. After the First World War he settled in Ireland to work and write for its complete independence. When the Free State was established he joined the Republican army, and, in 1922, was one of the many leaders who were arrested and shot by firing squads in the tragic civil war that followed.
