Lost Face is a classic story by legendary writer Jack London about a man out of place and out of time. Subienkow is a Polack, who in mid-1800’s Russian America finds himself the second-to-last survivor of a group of Russian fur-thieves who have just been defeated by liberators from the local tribe they have enslaved as forced labour. Now Subienkow faces a long, protracted and painful death unless he can come up with a plan for escape.
