The Sea-Wolf," is an old Jack London classic. My first experience with Jack London and both wonderful reads.
The Sea-Wolf," is an old Jack London classic. A great book for English Lit. and has surely been the focus of stacks of term papers. But, if that drives you away from reading this tale, you will miss a great read! I took this book on after burning through "Call of the Wild, " and "White Fang," on my new Kindle. These two books gave me a lot of insight into the themes that show up in " The Sea-Wolf.
Jack London's novels and ruggedly individual life seemed to embody American hopes, frustrations, and romantic longings in the turbulent first years of the twentieth century, years infused with the wonder and excitement of great technological and historic change. The author's restless spirit, taste for a life of excitement, and probing mind led him on a series of hard-edged adventures from the Klondike to the South Seas.

The jacket itself was actually used at San Quentin at the time and Jack London's descriptions of it were based on interviews with a former convict named Ed Morrell, which is also the name of a character in the novel. For his role in the Sontag and Evans gang which robbed the Southern Pacific Railroad in the 1890s, Morrell spent fourteen years in California prisons (1894-1908), five of them in solitary confinement. London championed his pardon. After his release, Morrell was a frequent guest at London's Beauty Ranch. This is a Librivox recording.
