Herman Melville (1819-1891) was an American sailor, novelist, writer of short stories, and poet. Most of his writings were published between 1846 and 1857 and represent the sea novels, based on his experience at sea as a common sailor.

“Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life” is the first book by Herman Melville, published in London in 1846. The narrator is a no-name sailor, who got in an island, inhabited by cannibals. It is interesting that the narrative is based on the author's actual experiences as a captive on the island Nuku Hiva in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands in 1842. 

The novel is considered a classic in travel and adventure literature, so you have a great opportunity to enjoy it!
