This is not the British Winston Churchill. This Winston Churchill is an American novelist born in St Louis, Missouri in 1871. Both Churchills communicated with each other and because the American Churchill was the first to publish, Sir Winston Churchill published his works under the name Winston S Churchill. The American Churchill was an officer in the U S Navy. He also was a novelist, essayist, and poet. His novels written in a naturalist style often expressed his political views. In 1898 Churchill published his first novel The Celebrity. A Traveller in War-Time was written about the period Churchill spent in England and France in 1917. He speaks of the British people voluntarily reducing their food supply to help the troops and the quality of the British military. Churchill's writing makes his experiences come alive for his readers.
As the navigator of a buccaneer crew, I'd traveled the seas and experienced the cultures, foods, and women of many different lands with pockets full of plundered gold. Living free and being rich, I hadn't considered what that was truly worth until the day I lost everything. Surviving my self-inflicted destitution by sweating out an honest trade, I fell for a good woman who saw me as more than a man who lived an adventurous life among the lawless. Her view of me caused me to look deeper into myself, and allowed me to see that there's more treasure in a life of piracy than wenches and gold alone. I was a world traveling artist of the seas. But no matter how enchanting the love of a good woman could be, the sea was my first love, and my tales would always be that of a traveler. -Sterling Bentley-
