Description
Captain McWhirr is a serious man who runs his steamer, the Nan-Shan, with efficiency and solidity. When a storm appears to be headed in their direction, MacWhirr is not concerned about his ship's ability to weather it, but, when the storm turns out to be a powerful typhoon which surges in across the Pacific Ocean headed straight for the Nan-Shan, MacWhirr and his crew must work together if they want to survive. This classic sea-faring story is believed to be based on author Joseph Conrad's real experiences at sea when he sailed aboard the John P. Best steamer under Captain John MacWhir.

display_description Typhoon is another novel about sailing adventures at the turn of the century written by the English mariner and novelist from Polish origins Joseph Conrad. It tells the story of Captain MacWhirr who, instead of making a U-turn, obstinately leads his steamer Nan-Shan into a typhoon. The story takes place in the Pacific Ocean and can generally serve as an excellent sea-faring document of the period. Having as passengers on board 200 Chinese blue-collar workers loaded with huge wooden boxes, the robust three-year old Nan-Shan is believed to be able to go through the typhoon. The crew discovers that the latter is of an unusual violence, however. As the steamers reach the danger zone, the structures of the boat have to fight the huge breakers and run the risk of crumbling into pieces. The captain and his assistants do their best to reach a maximum speed so that the Nan-Shan faces the successive blows. What further exacerbates Captain MacWhirr's ordeal is the possibility of an on-board mutiny amid the tempest led by the Chinese workers whose boxes have been damaged. By the end of the novel, the captain eventually succeeds in going through the typhoon and in recovering peace and order onboard.
