With the mythical northwest passage reopening, these stories have renewed magic
Jack London's writing is famous with good reason. One of the lines that caught me early on in this series of short stories was "The world's explorers have known it, from time to time, but hitherto they have never returned to tell the world."
Part of what got me thinking about stories about Eskimos and the great frozen North was the reopening of the mythical northwest passage, and these stories capture that sense of the finale frontier, the cultures we are still getting to know and discover, and bring to life that sense of exploration, in its many facets.

Read information about the authorJack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.
London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent time in the Klondike during the Gold Rush and at various times was an oyster pirate, a seaman, a sealer, and a hobo. His first work was published in 1898. From there he went on to write such American classics as Call of the Wild, Sea Wolf, and White Fang.
