In The Children of the New Forest, Marryat describes the
trials and triumphs of the four Beverley children, orphaned during the
English Civil War and forced to take refuge with a poor woodsman in the
New Forest. This is the first annotated edition of a great children's
classic, which has retained its popularity since 1847.
