Description
Like the celebrated Klondike Tales, the stories that comprise South Sea Tales derive their intensity from the author’s own far-flung adventures, conveying an impassioned, unsparing vision borne only of experience. The powerful tales gathered here vividly evoke the turn-of-the-century colonial Pacific and its capricious tropical landscape, while also trenchantly observing the delicate interplay between imperialism and the exotic. And as Tony Horwitz asserts in his Introduction, “When London’s stories click, we are utterly there, at the edge of the world and the limit of human endurance.”

display_description"South Sea Tales" is a fantastic 1911 collection of short stories written by Jack London, most of which center around island communities or life abroad a ship. The stories include: "The House of Mapuhi", "The Whale Tooth", "Mauki", "'Yah! Yah! Yah!'", "The Heathen", "The Terrible Solomons", "The Inevitable White Man", and "The Seef of McCoy". This volume will not disappoint lovers of the short story form, and it constitutes a must-read for fans and collectors of London's seminal work. John Griffith London (1876 - 1916), commonly known as Jack London, was an American journalist, social activist, and novelist. He was an early pioneer of commercial magazine fiction, becoming one of the first globally-famous celebrity writers who were able to earn a large amount of money from their writing. London is famous for his contributions to early science fiction and also notably belonged to "The Crowd", a literary group and Francisco known for its radical members and ideas. Other notable works by this author include: "Martin Eden" (1909), "The Kempton-Wace Letters" (1903), and "The Call of the Wild" (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
