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.

To anyone who has never read any Jack London this book is a perfect place to get to know this classic writer of high adventure. London is one of those writers whose work is truly written for the ages and is often read over and over again, never growing old. There are few writers about whom this can be said, but two others who readily come to mind are Hemingway and Michener, and what better company could London have than that?
