Post Conrad, Joseph: The Children of the Sea. v1. 11 Jul 07

The book draws on Conrad's own experience of twenty years as a master mariner; the Narcissus is sailing to London with two new hands, Wait and Donkin, and these two test the crew by Wait almost dying, and Donkin by attempting to raise the crew to mutiny. Originally published in 1897 and regarded as Conrad's first masterpiece, the book is a disturbing and powerful portrait of the sea and sea-life.

Enjoy!

I'm being a bit of a nit-picker here, but this book's real title is The Nigger of the 'Narcissus'. Conrad was forced to change it by the publisher. I noticed you do have that title listed on the second page, but it was confusing to me as to what the actual title was.
