South Sea tales by Jack London

I met him first in a hurricane; and though we had gone through the hurricane on the same schooner, it was not until the schooner had gone to pieces under us that I first laid eyes on him. Without doubt I had seen him with the rest of the kanaka crew on board, but I had not consciously been aware of his existence, for the Petite Jeanne was rather overcrowded.

London is one of those writers whose work is truly written for the ages and is often read over and over again, never growing old. There are few writers about whom this can be said, but two others who readily come to mind are Hemingway and Michener, and what better company could London have than that?
