The Cruise of the Snark

Jack London

Publisher:Penguin Books

Jack London's own account of a far - reaching voyage, from daily life on the boat to the stories of native encounters and marauder assaults Inspired by the examples of his heroes Melville, Stevenson, and Joshua Slocum, Jack London determined to sail around the world. In April 1907 he sailed from San Francisco in the forty-five-foot ketch Snark, with his wife, Charmian, a skeleton crew, and his writing to keep him company. Beset by seasickness and tropical disease, London wrote incessantly—not only his autobiographical novel Martin Eden and numerous short stories, but also a series of sketches recording the voyage itself. These entertaining sketches, collected together into the book he called The Cruise of the Snark, reveal London's indefatigable spirit and love of adventure at sea and among the Pacific islands. This new edition of Jack London's adventure classic includes an illuminating Introduction and Notes by R.D. Madison, as well as London's delightful sea pieces 'That Dead Men Rise Up Never' and 'The Joy of Small-Boat Sailing.'
