"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." "Captain Grief encounters the adventurers, scoundrels, pirates, and opportunists who followed the example of their colonial predecessors and exploited the islands and their resources early in the twentieth century. Inspired by London's own voyage through the South Seas on board his self-made yacht, the Snark, these stories paint a colorful - and at times horrifying - picture of the remote South Pacific."--Jacket

The valley of the moon by Jack London( Book )

1 edition published in 1926 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A road novel fifty years before Kerouac, The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife in Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently - a journey that echoes Jack London's own escape from urban poverty. As he lost hope in the prospects of the socialist party and organized labor, London began researching a scientific and environmentally sound approach to agriculture. In his novel it is Saxon, London's most fully realized heroine, who embodies these concerns. The Valley of the Moon is London's paean to his wife Charmian and to the pastoral life and his ranch in Glen Ellen, the Valley of the Moon. A new foreword by Kevin Starr comments on the themes of the novel and its interest for contemporary readers."--Jacket
