Ah, the good old days, when lusty men sailed in search of adventure. They don't write 'em like this anymore (for reasons good and not so good). London's novel--really a series of short stories--is vividly informed by his experiences in the South Pacific. His considerable storytelling skills engage listeners who might not be otherwise drawn to this subject. Brian Emerson contributes a well-paced reading and an authentic range of voices. His David Grief is just right: self-assured and always in control. A word of warning: London has outdated views of people of other races, which may prevent enjoyment of this work by some listeners.
