Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• "Before Adam" is Jack London's fictional tour de force. In it, he brilliantly recreates the dawn of humanity, depicting the prehistoric world as a place of dark conflict where only the fittest will survive. Tormented by a succession of terrifying dreams, the narrator is faced with the strange truth that his consciousness has become entwined with that of Big-Tooth, his mid-Pleistocene ancestor. Through these dream memories, he witnesses Big-Tooth's life as one of the "Folk" race--a life without developed language, social structure, or fire. He sees, too, the Folk's fierce battles for survival against the more advanced Fire People and the primitive Tree People.
