A Peep at Polynesian LifeeBook - 2019
Herman Melville is one of the greatest figures in literary history. His classic Moby Dick is generally considered the finest novel ever written by an American. Yet in Melville' s day, Typee was a far more popular book. Largely autobiographical, this classic adventure story is set in the South Seas, where a runaway sailor is captured by the Typees. Described as " a fierce and unrelenting tribe of savages," the islanders have no intention of letting their captive go.
