The story of Irish Terrier that went to sea, written by the author while stretched out on Waikiki Beach. Jack London's tale of adventure on the South Seas includes a foreword by the author, in which he says, "I hope I have given some assurance that the adventures of my dog hero in this novel are real adventures in a very real cannibal world." "Not until Mister Haggin abruptly picked him up under one arm and stepped into the sternsheets of the waiting whaleboat, did Jerry dream that anything untoward was to happen to him. Mister Haggin was Jerry's beloved master, and had been his beloved master for the six months of Jerry's life. Jerry did not know Mister Haggin as "master," for "master" had no place in Jerry's vocabulary, Jerry being a smooth-coated, golden-sorrel Irish terrier."
