Description

Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life is a mid-19th century novel by author Herman Melville. Largely based on his own personal experiences as a beach comber in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands. Although today Moby Dick is the most popular title by Melville, Typee was considered during his lifetime to be his most popular work. Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life is highly recommended for those who enjoy the writings of Herman Melville and for those who are discovering his writings for the first time.
