Set adrift after a collision with another vessel, ferry passenger Humphrey van Weyden is picked up by the seal-hunting schooner , the Ghost. His relief at being rescued slowly turns into concern once he meets her captain, the brutally terrifying Wolf Larsen. The crew of the Ghost live in terror of their fearsome commander and van Weyden is not made any safer because Larsen is attracted to his new passengers comparable intelligence.
Wolf Larsen is one of the greatest characters in early 20th century American fiction. Like Captain Ahab before him, he is a man who has spent too long at sea. We might assume he has become inhuman, but the novel gradually but subtly reveals that it was the nature of life at the mercy of the angry oceans that turned him into the sea wolf
This special edition includes an exclusive Foreward by adventurer Bear Grylls, whicvh takes a fascinating look at the character of Wolf Larsen from the perspective of someone who has also stared nature in its unforgiving face.
