South Sea Tales

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jack London

Narrated By: Lloyd James

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2006

Duration: 6 hours 5 minutes

Summary:

A rare pearl is fought over during a hurricane on a South Sea island. A zealous missionary sets out to spread the Gospel in a land of cannibals. The son of a Polynesian chief becomes the slave of a white man. These stories and others portray life in the South Seas in the days of tall ships a century ago. In powerful and compelling language that seems not the least bit dated, Jack London tells eight tales of high daring and great savagery, of bravery and death, even of occasional humor, that could only take place in the exotic South Sea islands and that result from the cultural meshing between whites and natives.

    A fun collection of stories by a master writer. I assume these were based on Jack London's own travels in the South Seas. It sounds like a pretty scary place with all the cannibalism and hurricanes!

    Well read, excellent production of a classic adventure, suitable for all age groups.
