The name JACK LONDON (18761916) is synonymous with adventure. In his storied life, London found employment as a factory worker, oyster pirate, able-bodied seaman, Klondike Argonaut, candidate for mayor of Oakland, California, Hearst journalist, hobo, and prison inmate. . . all before the publication of his first novel, The Call of the Wild, at the age of 27. Included here are his classic Klondike gold rush survival stories, "Love of Life" and "To Build a Fire," plus the ironically gritty "War." Also included in this collection are Londons quirky tales of vengeance and humor, "That Spot" and "Moon-face." These tales feature some of the most colorful characters ever assembled, both human and animal.
