Pirates, shipwrecks, terrible storms, and cannibals! Why would anyone ever want to Sail the Seven Seas? You will find all this and much more in Jack London's adventure novel 'A Son of the Sun.'
Set in the Pacific Ocean, these eight different stories are told from the point of view of David, a businessman who once traveled the South Seas. The narrative is largely influenced by London’s own voyages, some of which proved rather dark and horrifying. The vivid natural descriptions and realistic character portrayal make 'A Son of the Sun' an entertaining and haunting sea novel, perfect for readers and fans of marine adventures.
