About the Author

John Griffith "Jack" London (1876 - 1916) was an American novelist, journalist and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North" and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen" and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.

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.
