Publisher's Summary

Captain David Grief, South Pacific tycoon, owns plantations and trading stations from New Guinea to Samoa, pearling fisheries in the Paumotus, and rubber acreages in the Louisiades. His own vessels recruit contract labor, and he operates three steamers on ocean runs. He came to the South Seas at the age of 20 and, blessed with a blond skin impervious to tropical rays, became browner through two decades as a true "son of the sun". At 40 years of age, he looks no more than 30. His manifold enterprises flourish. His is the golden touch. But he plays the South Seas game not for the gold, but for the game's sake and for the daring life of the island rover. This book, originally published as A Son of the Sun, gives David Grief's adventures through eight long tales of danger and daring told in Jack London's graphic and colorful style.
