by Jack London (Author)

Written in 1911 by American writer Jack London, "Adventure" tells about the confrontation between a man who finds himself alone in front of a plantation - harassed by blacks cannibals - and a bold, independent and liberated feminist woman, Joan Lackland, who's arrival at the plantation turns everything upside down...

"Adventure", a devastating portrayal of colonialism and slavery set in the Solomon Islands, has generated considerable controversy since its publication over the question of whether London shared the racist beliefs of his characters or, on the contrary, was merely presenting them accurately.
