Publisher's Summary

"The Cruise of the Dazzler" is an early novel by Jack London, set in his home city of San Francisco. It is considered a boy's adventure novel. In the novel, Joe Bronson, dissatisfied with his dull life at school, runs away and joins the crew of a sloop he sees in San Francisco Bay. He finds the captain is involved in criminal activities. The nautical activities on board a sailing boat are authentically described, and there are convincing descriptions of boats enduring stormy weather at sea.

Kept me coming back

Some of these Jack London books I got for .66. Some have not been worth that to me. This one was great! Worth much more.

What a tale to ignite questions!

Fantastic opportunity to be reminded of charitable intentions at the very beginning of the story and WHAT a story, indeed! I HAVE to ask about the former: First:, is Audible doing anything to help with reading projects at, for example, the Boys and Girls Cub of America, or the equivalent in any other countries? (I am embarrassed that I never THOUGHT of the possibilities that exits for promotion of reading!!)

A close second: WHAT an EXCELLENT story to start off the Jack London saga! Is there a recommended sequence? How better to reflect on growth than getting the input in the correct sequence! (I have to admit that I"'ve been "sequence-less" in my approach to reading whatever is available, in whatever "sequence" I stumbled onto it!) THANK YOU, AUIBILE!!!
