Product Description

One of the most widely read of all American writers, Jack London (1876-1916) based his novels and stories on the experiences and observations of a life that took him from the frozen wilds of the Klondike to the sun-drenched atolls of the South Seas. This volume presents a selection of five of his best stories, each brimming with the energy, color and drive typical of London's vivid story-telling style. Here are five stories that epitomize Jack London's mastery of the adventure story and the compelling prose style that influenced generations of writers.

Publisher's Description

Five stories that epitomize Jack London's mastery of the adventure story. "The White Silence," "In a Far Country," and "An Odyssey of the North" bring the harshness of the frozen North powerfully to life. "The Seed of McCoy" reflects London's experiences as a sailor in the South Seas. "The Mexican" combines London's talents as a sports writer with a sympathetic portrayal of a prize fighter involved in the Mexican Revolution. Publisher's Note.
