Calm, stoic captain Mac Whirr has just been given command of a new steamship, the Nan-Shan . He and his crew are transporting Asian workers across the China Sea when a sudden drop in atmospheric pressure alerts Mac Whirr of ""some uncommonly dirty weather knocking about."" Soon the steamship, her crew, and the human cargo are caught in the midst of a vicious typhoon. The impending disaster brings out the best and the worst of Mac Whirr; Jukes, the chief mate; Solomon, the wise engineer; and the rest of the crew. Conrad shows that in the struggle for survival, true character will always be exposed.

display_description Joseph Conrad's classic oceanic adventure pits the will of man against the sheer destructive force of nature The decks of the Nan-Shan boast young and imaginative first mate Jukes and no-nonsense captain MacWhirr. But when the ocean turns violent and the skies darken ominously, will the captain's skepticism and the crew's foolhardiness be the Nan-Shan's undoing? Based on Conrad's experiences as a sailor aboard a turn-of-the-century freighter, this thrilling adventure has at its center the titular typhoon-a force threatening untold death and destruction, and humbling even the greatest of men. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
