The Twenty-Fifth Man : The Strange Story of Ed. Morrell, the Hero of Jack London's "star Rover" (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Twenty-Fifth Man: The Strange Story of Ed. Morrell, the Hero of Jack London's "Star Rover" A human document is always interesting, especially when the individual concerned has learned some great moral les son as a result ot'his experiences; but, when a man has been tortured well nigh unto death, and punished for things of which he was not guilty, and then has been able to rise above the baser human passions and forgive his enemies, he has achieved a victory that the ordinary man finds it diffit to understand. The autobiography of such a man is doubly interesting. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
