Cannery Row

by John Steinbeck

Cannery Row Chapter 15 Summary

  • Back to our regularly scheduled programming.
  • Mack and the boys learn that the captain's wife is a politician and out of town. Par-tay!
  • The captain brings up a giant barrel of whiskey from the cellar and everyone gets a little toasty before going out to catch frogs.
  • Finally, they go out to the pond and catch frogs beyond their wildest expectations.
  • Back in the house, they have more whiskey and light the curtains on fire.
  • The captain falls asleep on the floor and, before he wakes up, Mack and the boys skedaddle with the jug of whiskey and puppy the captain had offered to them.
