Ce livre est un carnet de voyage constitué en rassemblant le texte de plusieurs articles rédigés par J. London au cours de sa navigation dans le Pacifique.
J'ai été un peu agacé par la candeur de J. London et son côté "ravi de la crèche".
Par ailleurs, mais c'est sans doute l'époque qui veut cela, et malgré sa façon d'afficher son progressisme et son ouverture sociale, on y constate un sentiment de supériorité occidentale pas si éloignée que cela du colonialisme. ( )

In this classic by a master of the adventure story, Jack London describes his around the world attempt by sail, which was inspired by the examples of his heroes Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Joshua Slocum. He sailed out from San Francisco, writing constantly and produces this series of sketches recording the voyage itself. These pieces, collected together, he called The Cruise of the Snark. The writings reveal London’s extraordinary love of adventure.
