All of Jack London's finest works IMHO. Bought this book as used, but it still had the bar code sticker on the back, and appears to have never been read. I'm very happy with a used copy that could very well pass for new.

All of Jack London's finest works IMHO. I'm actually really pissed off because the description did not state that there were three NOVELS in the book, just that it was a collection of 40 short stories. Now I have double copies of the three novels instead of just a collection of short stories like I wanted.

The Jack London Page at American Literature, featuring a biography and Free Library of the author's Novels, Stories, Poems, Letters, and Texts. Jack London was his pen name, likely born in San Francisco, California as John Griffith Chaney. Like the restive characters in his works, London sought a variety of experiences as a young man including sailor, hobo and an agitator for jobs during the depression. He also wrote some of the earliest Dystopian Fiction, including The Iron Heel which portrays America under tyrannical rule, written ten years before the Bolsheviks took over Russia.

John Griffith London (born John Griffith Chaney; January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first writers to become a worldwide celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing. He was also an innovator in the genre that would later become known as science fiction.

This page contains details about the Fiction book The Sea-Wolf by Jack London published in 1904. Its first printing of forty thousand copies was immediately sold out before publication on the strength of London's previous The Call of the Wild. This book is the 1884th greatest Fiction book of all time as determined by thegreatestbooks.

Jack London wrote many adventure stories set in the frozen north. Some of his stories are still frequently anthologized. He was a big commercial success in his time. Tom King is an aging prize-fighter preparing for a bout. In this role he is Big Bill Tots. He begins to enjoy these trips more and more.

Jack London, born January 12, 1876, was an American author, journalist, and social activist.

This is a good collection (and currently available, used, at a heck of a bargain price) of London's stories about gold mining in Alaska. If you are looking for other themes, they are in short supply here; London's South Pacific stories, for example, aren't here. The focus is almost exclusively on the frozen wastelands of the north (except for the Sea-Wolf novel).

Much of the prose is top-notch; and even when the prose could use a little work, the stories are quite compelling. White Fang, for example, relies far too heavily on passive voice, but remains one of the most visceral stories ever written with a non-human protagonist.

This vintage edition is quite hefty but with a sturdy binding, and with illustrations throughout. All in all, a beautiful and affordable collection of classic tales of the frozen north and the people - and animals - who braved it in a rough and dangerous era.

All of Jack London's finest works IMHO. Bought this book as used, but it still had the bar code sticker on the back, and appears to have never been read. I'm very happy with a used copy that could very well pass for new. I bought this book for my still in the womb grandson to be God willing library. It is his mothers hope he turn out to be an avid reader, like us. So, I furnished something old, something new, something classic, something true. This book fulfilled classic, the bible true.

I'm actually really pissed off because the description did not state that there were three NOVELS in the book, just that it was a collection of 40 short stories. Now I have double copies of the three novels instead of just a collection of short stories like I wanted. The stories are great and the book is very nice just not what I wanted to buy. If you're wondering the three novels are The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea Wolf.

First story so beautiful and poignant, it brought tears to my eyes. London displays a true understanding of the deeper reaches of nature. A remarkably real parable of the civilized dog brought back to his wild roots. "White Fang", longer and wildly overwritten, is nevertheless deeply affecting also. Romantic, sentimental, and perhaps somewhat unrealistic. Each story was wonderful and very individual, somewhat amazing considering there are 40 of them. "The Sea Wolf" was the best of all, I thought. The character of Wolf Larsen was just totally intriguing. And I have never forgotten (and will probably carry with me to my grave) a line from that book, uttered by Larsen. To paraphase - The most abundant thing on this planet is not air, or water or land. They are all perishable, or can be ruined or consumed in some way or another. It is life, life itself, that is everywhere. Wolf Larsen was one of the most unforgettable characters in fiction that I have ever run across. An amoral man to the nth degree.

in a collection of short stories, why the hell don't you give your customers access to the table of contents?
