Jack London: The Cruise of the Snark

Language:
English
Genres:
Travel & Adventure, Biographies & Memoirs

John Griffith "Jack" London was an American author, journalist, and social activist. 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 alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". “The Cruise of the Snark” is some kind of a non-fictional book with illustrations by Jack London which relates about his sailing adventures in 1907 across the south Pacific in his ketch named “Snark”. What's more unbelievable that the assistant of this voyage was his own wife Charmian London and a small crew. London taught himself celestial navigation and the basics of sailing and of boats during the course of this adventure and describes these details to the reader. He visits exotic locations including the Solomon Islands and Hawaii, and his first-person accounts and photographs provide insight into these remote places at the beginning of the 20th century.
