Summary
"Inspired by Melville's own experiences on the high seas, this classic adventure tale pits two sailors against an island of cannibals. After six months of relentless battering by the turbulent South Pacific, the whaling ship known as the "Dolly" is beginning to resemble a swollen and cracking prison. For Tommo, it's been six months of little to eat but stale biscuits, six months of steady abuse and derision from his shipmates, six months with nothing to distract him from the daily drudgery of life aboard the boat. All that time and not even a hint of land--it's enough to drive anyone mad. Thousands of miles from home, the "Dolly" finally chances upon a remote island, and Tommo and fellow sailor Toby resolve to strike out on their own. Intrigue and excitement ensue when they discover their new haven to be inhabited by a tribe of cannibals! This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices."
