Jack London es autor de algunas de las mejores novelas de aventuras de todos los tiempos. Este libro recupera un viaje real del autor, su mujer y unos amigos a través del Pacífico en un velero, el Snark, de apenas quince metros. Desde San Francisco a las islas Salomón pasando por Hawai y Las Marquesas.

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. ( )
