Summary

Humphrey van Weyden led a privileged existence during his early life, but suddenly finds himself cast into the sea, fighting for survival. Pitted against ruthless captain Wolf Larsen, van Weyden's courage and determination allows him to fight adversity and learn valuable lessons along the way, in this American classic originally published in 1904.
One of the great tales of the sea, The Sea-Wolf is in the tradition of Moby Dick, though London provided his own unique atmosphere and accurate maritime detail.

Not really, about the sea.

The voyage is mostly a device to allow the author to present his debate regarding the nature of raw human nature versus what he sees as 'civilised' society. The unlikely combination of characters are thrown together and left to battle and reflect on what is to be human and exist. Not what I was expecting, which was an atmospheric sea fairing yarn. An interesting tale though, glad I bought it.
