One might expect daring of Jack London, an author who has been gold-miner, sailor, frontiersman, adventurer; whose writing can no more be trite or commonplace than can the narrative of his own life history. But no fictionist ever dreamed of daring to attempt what Jack London has done here--to plunge into the gray mist that shrouds the beginnings of our race; to paint

Overview

One might expect daring of Jack London, an author who has been gold-miner, sailor, frontiersman, adventurer; whose writing can no more be trite or commonplace than can the narrative of his own life history. But no fictionist ever dreamed of daring to attempt what Jack London has done here--to plunge into the gray mist that shrouds the beginnings of our race; to paint in vivid colors a picture of that alleged and disputed ancestor of ours; to outline his brutal life, his loves, his hates, his first efforts toward human reasoning poiver; to do all this with such wonderful vividness that the skeptic is convinced by the plain truth of it.

An interesting take on evolution, written during a time when the concept was taking center stage. Enjoyed the book.

Decent enough of a copy to read, less spelling errors than most copies. Story-wise, it's interesting enough. I was pleased with the writing.

This book gives you a lot to think about. Good writing, but a bit abusive to the reader by battering around the protaginist.

Well put together, this copy has fewer errors than many scanned copies so was pretty easy to read. The story itself was well thought-out and a satisfying read.

Yes, I am a big Jack London fan. And this little book with it hidden metaphors, is typical of the genius of Mr. London. Although not meant to be so scientifically accurate, the meanings are presented in a brilliant manner. So for you Jack London fans or otherwise, enjoy the read.
