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 Francisco Bay, and plucked 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.

Unabridged audio CD.

Publisher's Description

“The danger lay in the heavy fog which blanketed the bay, and of which, as a landsman, I had little apprehension.”

This is the first line in this tale of a man uprooted and thrust into the unfamiliar and dangerous world of the sealing sailor. Humphrey Van Weyden, a San Francisco sophisticate and an intellectual, finds himself the captive voyager aboard The Ghost, captained by the brutal and barbaric Wolf Larsen. Van Weyden’s rights disappear as the coast of California vanishes over the horizon.

Almost immediately, the slave plots his freedom—and Van Weyden must confront the weakness in his soul, mind, and body.

Generations have been spellbound by this harrowing story of danger on the sea, psychological confrontation, and the dual nature of humankind.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio’s extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.
