Being a Seaman in the 19th-Century

"Dashing forever against their coral rampart, the breakers looked in the distance, like a line of rearing white chargers reined in, tossing their white manes, and bridling with foam." - Herman Melville, Omoo

Omoo is basically a fiction-driven adventure novel based on Herman Melville’s South Pacific seamanship experience. The novel is a sequel to Typee; this time, the action is set on the remote islands of Tahiti and includes mutiny, recruiting new members, facing cannibalistic local tribes and handling the mutineers. How will the story end?
