A picture of the author Walter McRoberts

Walter McRoberts was an adventure traveler and author, best known for his short story collection, Rounding Cape Horn and Other Stories (1895)

Roll on, thou deep and dark
blue ocean—roll!
Ten thousand fleets sweep
over thee in vain;
Man marks the earth with
ruin—his control
Stops with the shore.
