Meet the Author


Jack London (1876-1916) was born in San Francisco, the illegitimate son of a music teacher whose lover spurned her after she refused an abortion. His writings dealt with his social activism and care for the worker. Largely self-educated, London became a sailor, a hobo, a gold miner, and a socialist—all of which would find their way into his fiction.
