Make Westing: and Other Tales of Sea and Sail

A lifelong waterman, Jack London (1876-1916) left behind a rich store in bold and beautiful prose depicting life upon the sea, under sail, and in step with wild, often perilous, nature. In these selected essays, chapters, and short stories, London brings us the sound of the wind in the rigging, the rapture of solitary starry nights spent out of sight of land, and all the other scents, sounds, emotions, and feelings so familiar to sailors everywhere. Behind every utterance lies a deep and reverent love for the sea and its magnificent, dangerous grandeur. In these testaments, London reveals himself as not just an eloquent and authoritative narrator, but also a boon companion, friend, and ally of all who share his passion for the delights of blue water.
