A collection of very early stories published posthumously, with a preface by his wife Charmian.
by Jack London
The young man dreams of the sea, runs away from home, hides in the hold of the ship, with the help of a friend is supplied with food. Then the terrible happens – the robinsonade of a man locked in a hold! The food spoils, the young man cannot leave his shelter for many reasons, he suffocates, suffers from hunger… The agony of body and soul begins, only at the very end comes salvation.
