Ralph  Keeler  failed  as  a  novelist,  but  this  autobiography  reflects  a  life  well-lived 
with  humor  and  adventure.  Keeler  was  in  the  same  literary  circle  as  satirist  Bret 
Harte,  novelist  Charles  Warren  Stoddard,  editor  Thomas  Bailey  Aldrich,  and 
essayist  William  Dean  Howells.  He  so  impressed  Mark  Twain  that  Twain  wrote  an 
essay  about  him  called  "Ralph  Keeler".  In  1873,  on  his  way  to  Cuba,  he 
reportedly  was  thrown  overboard  by  a  Spanish  loyalist  who  objected  to  his 
backing  of  the  revolutionary,  anti-Spanish  movement.
