When Humphrey Van Weyden finds himself struggling in the freezing waters of San Francisco Bay, he thinks the worst that can happen to him is drowning. After he is rescued by the Ghost and its captain, Wolf Larson, Humphrey discovers that there are fates far worse than death. On Larsen's hell-ship, the dilettante hero is forced to slave as cabin boy and humble seaman. Over the seven months' voyage to the sealing grounds off Siberia, he engages in an epic duel with his ruthlessly Nietzschean skipper, a conflict that must end with the death of one of them.

In Humphrey's story Jack London recalls his own adventures on a sealing vessel at the age of seventeen. And in the vivid dialogs between Larsen and Van Weyden he gives the clearest definition of his savage philosophy of life.

A masterpiece. In the same category, as far as dramatic intensity goes, as Wuthering Heights. Wolf Larsen is as cunning and pityless as Heathcliff, but in addition is also a philosopher. The discussion with the "rescued" passenger Humpĥrey van Weyden on the worthlessness of human life is worth reading. Dramatic intensity to the last page.

A most wonderful introduction to this infamous author. I was riveted. The experience heightened by an absolutely excellent narration!
