"The Sea-Wolf" is a 1904 psychological adventure novel by American novelist Jack London. The book's protagonist, Humphrey van Weyden, is a literary critic who is a survivor of an ocean collision and who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him.

Its first printing of forty thousand copies was immediately sold out before publication on the strength of London's previous book "The Call of the Wild." Ambrose Bierce wrote, "The great thing-and it is among the greatest of things-is that tremendous creation, Wolf Larsen... the hewing out and setting up of such a figure is enough for a man to do in one lifetime... The love element, with its absurd suppressions, and impossible proprieties, is awful."

The hero Humphrey "Hump" is tossed overboard during a storm at sea and picked up by a passing sealer ship captained by the infamous "Wolf Larssen ." Wolf has no intention of carrying Hump to his destination. He can become one of the crew and tow the line or he can be eaten by the fishes. His choice.

Over the course of the book Hump goes from being a bit of a wet noodle (but a gentleman) to a much stronger, self reliant man. Its a great character study but also a pretty exciting adventure. Wolf Larssen can be quite terrifying, especially when he nears his end...
