Overview

Alfred Kazin has aptly remarked that “the greatest story Jack London ever wrote was the story he lived.” Newsboy, factory “work beast, ” gang member, hobo, sailor, Klondike argonaut, socialist crusader, war correspondent, utopian farmer, and world-famous adventurer: London is the closest thing America has had to a literary folk hero. His writing itself is concerned with nothing less than the largest questions and the grandest themes: What does it mean to be a human being in the natural world? What debts do human beings owe each other – and to all their fellow creatures? This collection places London, at last, securely within the American literary pantheon. It includes the complete novel The Call of the Wild; such famous stories as “Love of Life, ” “To Build a Fire, ” and “All Gold Canyon”; journalism, political writings, literary criticism, and selected letters.
