Item description for Adventure (Large Print) by Jack London...

The bell had hardly rung, sending the labourers into the fields, when Sheldon had a visitor. He had had the couch taken out on the veranda, and he was lying on it when the canoes paddled in and hauled out on the beach. Forty men, armed with spears, bows and arrows, and war-clubs, gathered outside the gate of the compound, but only one entered.

Reviews - What do customers think about Adventure (Large Print)?

EEEEEEwwww! Jack London at his racist worst  Nov 19, 2000
The subject of Jack London's alleged racism comes up from time to time. My personal belief that he lived in a racist time, and accepted contemporary views uncritically, neither promoting nor opposing them. One can easily assemble evidence either way. I don't believe that a real racist could written stories showing empathy for the downtrodden in the way that London does in "The Chinago," "Koolau the Leper," and "The Mexican."

This being said, if one wanted to make Jack London out to be a racist, "Adventure" would certainly be a good place to start. There are passages in it that are so dreadful that you don't know whether to laugh or to cry. They are so bad that I am very reluctant even to quote them. One of the less offensive:

"'Jump!' he shouted fiercely at the end, his will penetrating the low intelligence of the black with dynamic force that made him jump to the task of brushing the loathsome swarms of flies away."
