Publisher's Summary

In the 1900s the San Francisco Bay was inhabited by a motley floating population of oyster pirates. One of these bandits was young Jack London, who, at the age of 16, had the good sense to switch sides and join the Fish Patrol. Dedicated to enforcing the many laws that were passed to protect the fish, the Fish Patrol had many death-defying encounters with the pirates. These seven short stories, based on both Jack's experiences and those of his fellow deputies, describe these incredible encounters, giving us a record of these outlaw times as only master storyteller London could.

Needs updated narration

London's chronoligical, tightly coupled tales of Fish Patrol fights with oyster pirates, Greek scofflaw salmon poachers and more is marred by this 1982 audio production with low audio quality and a narrator that is just phoning it in.
