Joseph Conrad’s classic oceanic adventure pits the will of man against the sheer destructive force of nature
The decks of the Nan-Shan boast young and imaginative first mate Jukes and no-nonsense captain MacWhirr. But when the ocean turns violent and the skies darken ominously, will the captain’s skepticism and the crew’s foolhardiness be the Nan-Shan’s undoing?
Based on Conrad’s experiences as a sailor aboard a turn-of-the-century freighter, this thrilling adventure has at its center the titular typhoon—a force threatening untold death and destruction, and humbling even the greatest of men.
