One of London's lesser-known works, this collection of eight short stories concerns the adventures of Capt. David Grief. In his South Pacific travels, Grief encounters exploitative natives, pirates, and colonists. This edition has introductions to each story by scholars Thomas R. Tietze and Gary J. Riedl, plus numerous illustrations and maps.
Entertaining, atmospheric, and action filled - yet difficult to obtain until now - the eight short stories in Jack London's A Son of the Sun center on the thrilling exploits of Captain David Grief in the dangerous and exotic South Seas.
