The Civil Rights Movement succeeded in large measure because of rhetorical appeals grounded in the Judeo-Christian religion. While movement leaders often used America's founding documents and ideals to depict Jim Crow's contradictory ways, the language and lessons of both the Old and New Testaments were often brought to bear on many civil rights events and issues from local desegregation to national policy matters. This volume chronicles how national movement leaders and local activists moved a nation to live up to the biblical ideals it often professed but infrequently practiced."

Jack, Hauptfigur und Ich-Erzähler, berichtet die Geschichte seines Lebens. Im Jahre 1786 geboren, wächst er als Sohn eines Seefahrers auf und ist von Kindesbeinen an mit den Geschichten von Meer und Ferne vertraut. Älter geworden, fährt er selbst zur See, wird Matrose und steigt allmählich in der Hierarchie des Schiffswesens von Stufe zu Stufe auf. Doch muss er viele Schwierigkeiten und Gefahren überstehen, bis er am Ende die geliebte Frau findet und der „arme Jack" zu Reichtum kommt. Frederick Marryat, der von großen Schriftstellern wie Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Conrad und C. S. Forester bewundert wurde und der die Welt, über die er schreibt, selbst in langen Seefahrer- und Kapitänsjahren gründlich kennengelernt hat, hat hier einen spannenden und berührenden Roman geschrieben, der Jung und Alt eine fesselnde Lektüre garantiert.
