    The Odysseys are a collection of stories about Ulysses' journey home from the war at Troy purportedly written in the 8th century BCE by Homer, a blind poet thought to have lived in the Greek colonies in Asia Minor, possibly at Smyrna. The events described are thought to have occurred centuries before being recorded by Homer, handed down orally since the twelfth century BCE, the golden era of the Greek Bronze Age when the world was populated by heroic mortals and often visited by the Gods. This verse translation in couplets by George Chapman was originally published in 1616, the first translation from the ancient Greek directly to English, although likely influenced by previous Latin translations. Chapman's translation has been admired by many, including John Keats and others. Many of these stories are familiar to us, Ulysses and the Sirens, Circe turning his crew to swine, their escape from the Cyclops on the bellies of his sheep, but Chapman's version includes violent episodes and suggestive innuendo that I don't recall from my childhood days.

    Eight tropical tales set in different regions of the South Pacificby the renowned nineteenth-century author of The Call of the Wild and White Fang.   These stories, like his renowned Klondike Tales, are based on Jack London’s own travels and adventures. Including such stories as “The House of Mapuhi,” “The Whale Tooth,” and “The Inevitable White Man,” this collection describes the beauties and dangers of the South Pacific as colonist ships explore the islands.   “All in all, if you like nautical and sea adventures, if you are interested in the history of the Pacific Islands, or if you want to read gripping tales set in the exotic lands, this book will be perfect for you. But remember—it is definitely not a piece of light-hearted literature!” —Tales from Pasifika
