About the Author: Jack London

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent time in the Klondike during the Gold Rush and at various times was an oyster pirate, a seaman, a sealer, and a hobo. His first work was published in 1898. From there he went on to write such American classics as Call of the Wild, Sea Wolf, and White Fang.

Estas historias de gran alcance, que claramente evocan el Pacífico colonial a finales del siglo con su paisaje tropical, derivan su intensidad de las aventuras lejanas del autor mismo. Transmitiendo un camino interior tortuoso captado en una narración en la que la naturaleza es cruel e indiferente al sufrimiento humano, esta colección presenta a caníbales, cazadores de cabezas, comerciantes de perlas y traficantes de esclavos en las islas. Pocos autores han descrito estos mares con más pasión y convicción.

These powerful stories, which vividly evoke the turn-of-the-century colonial Pacific and its tropical landscape, derive their intensity from the author’s own far-flung adventures. Conveying a tortuous inner journey captured in a narrative in which nature is cruel and indifferent to human suffering, this collection shifts between cannibals, headhunters, and pearl and slave traders on the islands. Few authors have portrayed these seas with more passion and conviction.
