“The danger lay in the heavy fog which blanketed the bay, and of which, as a landsman, I had little apprehension.”

This is the first line in this tale of a man uprooted and thrust into the unfamiliar and dangerous world of the sealing sailor. Humphrey Van Weyden, a San Francisco sophisticate and an intellectual, finds himself the captive voyager aboard The Ghost, captained by the brutal and barbaric Wolf Larsen. Van Weyden’s rights disappear as the coast of California vanishes over the horizon.

Almost immediately, the slave plots his freedom—and Van Weyden must confront the weakness in his soul, mind, and body.

Generations have been spellbound by this harrowing story of danger on the sea, psychological confrontation, and the dual nature of humankind.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio’s extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
