Cruise of the Dazzler

Overview

A review from The Bystander: An Illustrated Weekly, Vol. 12 [1907]:

"Mr. Jack London, who has been most unfairly dubbed the "Kipling of America," has just had published "The Cruise of the 'Dazzler' ", a book which will do much to clear him of the conveyed reproach. It is a little story of the adventures of a 'Frisco boy, afloat with pirates unawares, in the waters around the Golden Gate, and the most complimentary thing to be said is that there is nothing Kiplingesque about it. A Kipling boy is one of those ...

A review from The Bystander: An Illustrated Weekly, Vol. 12 [1907]:

"Mr. Jack London, who has been most unfairly dubbed the "Kipling of America," has just had published "The Cruise of the 'Dazzler' ", a book which will do much to clear him of the conveyed reproach. It is a little story of the adventures of a 'Frisco boy, afloat with pirates unawares, in the waters around the Golden Gate, and the most complimentary thing to be said is that there is nothing Kiplingesque about it. A Kipling boy is one of those calamities from which one prays to be delivered, and this young Joe of 'Frisco is not. He is a youth who has the real love of the sea and a hatred of bookwork. He is a born fighter, yet possessed of a sense of honour and chivalry afloat which makes him a pleasing acquaintance. There is no specially bloodthirsty incident of the conventional kind in the book. 'Frisco Kid and the Frenchman, Pete, with whom our hero sails the seas on the Dazzler, are a couple of high-sea hooligans, rather than pirates. The high-sea hooligan is something new in adventure-fiction, and 'Frisco is not an overwritten city, and Jack" London is something quite fresh and strong in the narrative line. Ergo: The Cruise of the Dazzler is something to be read."

    Great, especially for young readers

    This is a great book for pre and early teens. Jack London's style is very easy to read. Although some of the language is outdated (the story was written over 100 years ago!) the plot is still relevant today.

    Sadly, the entire story is not here! It stops mid-sentence! loved the story, but would like the ending.
