Overview
Readers with a taste for two-fisted yarns will love this 1904 Jack London classic, crackling with action and adventure. Plucked from a sinking ferry by a seal-hunting ship named the Ghost, young Humphrey Van Weyden finds his initial relief turning rapidly to fear and repulsion. Wolf Larsen, the ship's ruthless, mentally unbalanced captain, refuses to return Van Weyden to San Francisco, pressing him into service as a cabin boy. As the Ghost heads for seal-hunting ranges in the Bering Sea, the captain's violent abuse of the crew creates a brutal atmosphere aboard ship that results in mutiny, shipwreck, and a final dramatic confrontation between Van Weyden and the captain.
