Overview

For those of us who have read some of Jack London's tales, we know that his writings are filled with stories of adventure, of nature and of the widerness. His works have the power to move us in such a way that we are enthralled by his insights on life, the struggles between man and nature, and the thrills of exploration.

An adventurous man himself, he has traveled a great deal on various ships and on numerous sailing trips. Many of his stories are based upon and drawn from his own remarkable experiences. Before he was known as a writer, Jack London was famous for his personal exploits. Jack London: Stories of Adventure features The Game in its entirety and 46 other dramatic short stories with the original illustrations.

If you haven't experienced any of Jack London's works, you are in for a treat. You will be surprised at how fast you will become spellbound. Others will find that his stories are even more exciting the second or third time around. For more of his tales of adventure, you can see his other collection of stories in Jack London: Tales of the North.
