About the Book
Jack London, born January 12, 1876, was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone.
He is best remembered as the author of White Fang and The Call of the Wild, set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire" and "The White Silence", both of which are included in this complete collection of his short fiction (over 200 stories).
His short stories span far more than just the Northland. From California & Hawaii, to the South Seas and beyond, London was truly a master of the short story form.
Also included here are all of London's essays, such as ''The Gold Hunters of the North'', ''The Dignity of Dollars'', ''What Communities Lose by the Competitive System'' and several journalism pieces, including an account of the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Plus two of his most famous novels, The Call of the Wild & White Fang.
