By Rosslyn Hyams

American adventurer and writer Jack London and his wife Charmian set off from California in 1907 to tour the world. RFI's Rosslyn Hyams follows their journey in the then-well-hidden South Pacific in a new exhibition in the French port of Marseille.

The exhibit Jack London dans les mers du Sud (Jack London in the South Seas) will run from 8 September, 2017 to 7 January, 2018 at the Centre de la Vieille Charité in Marseille, France.
