"This book depicts the cruise of Jack London's forty-five-foot ketch Snark in 1906 - 1908. The world-famous writer, his wife and the daring crew sailed the tiny craft for two years through the South Seas. Mr. Martin Johnson, the author of this book, who started in as cook, soon became the close friend and chief companion of Mr. London. His work, detailed and complete, gives real insight into life aboard the yacht and among the myriad islands of the South Pacific."
