An ancestors legacy. The promise of gold. The excitement of adventure. Who could resist? When young heir Francis Morgan receives an offer to hunt for the lost treasure of his ancestor, the pirate Henry Morgan, he seems to have hit the jackpot. It soon becomes clear, however, that Francis is in way over his head, and the promise of gold becomes the least exciting thing about this proposition.
Written shortly before his death in 1920, Hearts of Three is one of Jack London’s finest novels, unmissable for fans of classic adventure.
Jack London (1876–1916) was an American writer and social activist. He grew up in the working class, but his unflinching realism eventually earned him the status of one of the highest-paid authors of his time. Many of his novels are considered classics today, his most notable being ‘Call of the Wild’, ‘Sea Wolf’, and ‘White Fang’. Fans of Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, and Charles Dickens will enjoy his ability to make the mundane captivating.
