Product Description

In the story, the gentlemen narrator, Humphrey Van Weyden, is pitted against an amoral sea captain, Wolf Larsen, in a clash of idealism. The novel begins when Van Weyden is swept overboard into San Fancisco Bay, and plcuked from the sea by Larsen's seal-hunting vessel, the Ghost. Pressed into service as a cabin boy by the ruthless captain, Van Weyden becomes an unwilling participant in a brutal shipboard drama. Larsen's increasingly violent abuse of the crew fuels a mounting tension that ultimately bolts into mutiny, shipwreck, and a desperate confrontation.

    This is riveting! This is a story of human character. My older son enjoyed this immensely and could see Jack London throughout the book.
