Meet the Author

Jack London (1876-1916) was an American writer. A troubled child, London's father abandoned the family and his mother grew despondent. As a child, he spent long hours in the public libraries educating himself and resolving to become a writer. He worked in a cannery, on fishing boats, and as a gold miner in the Klondike. His varied experiences heavily influenced his writing and his politics. For much of his life, London was a committed socialist.
