Overview

A Daughter of the Snows (Dodo Press) by Jack London

Jack London (1876-1916), was an American author and a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction. He was one of the first Americans to make a lucrative career exclusively from writing. London was self-educated. He taught himself in the public library, mainly just by reading books. In 1898, he began struggling seriously to break into print, a struggle memorably described in his novel, Martin Eden (1909). Jack London was fortunate in the timing of his writing career. He started just as new printing technologies enabled lower-cost production of magazines. This resulted in a boom in popular magazines aimed at a wide public, and a strong market for short fiction. In 1900, he made $2,500 in writing, the equivalent of about $75,000 today. His career was well under way. Among his famous works are: Children of the Frost (1902), The Call of the Wild (1903), The Sea Wolf (1904), The Game (1905), White Fang (1906), The Road (1907), Before Adam (1907), Adventure (1911), and The Scarlet Plague (1912).

The formatting was so poor, I had trouble following the text and had to delete this book. I've replaced it with a much better formatted one from Feedbooks. I can't believe B&N maintains a walled garden (except with the recent developments opening it for the HD/HD+) yet doesn't vet some of the awfully formatted books one finds there! Bad form, BN.

The story overall is facinating, but difficult with some of the idoms added to the typos is the scan.
