Klondike Tales

Klondike Tales

Book - 2001
Rate this:
As a young man in the summer of 1897, Jack London joined the Klondike gold rush. From that seminal experience emerged these gripping, inimitable wilderness tales, which have endured as some of London's best and most defining work. With remarkable insight and unflinching realism, London describes the punishing adversity that awaited men in the brutal, frozen expanses of the Yukon, and the extreme tactics these adventurers and travelers adopted to survive. As Van Wyck Brooks observed, "One felt that the stories had been somehow lived--that they were not merely observed--that the author was not telling tales but telling his life."

This edition is unique to the Modern Library, featuring twenty-three carefully chosen stories from London's three collected Northland volumes and his later Klondike tales. It also includes two maps of the region, and notes on the text.

I read every story in this collection of Mr. London's and found they are so attention getting (moving) that it took some time to complete the book. The stories seem so fact based that they are difficult to ignore and so made it possible that I too can sympathize with Mr. London's known liberal political views even though now several decades after his death. I purchased my own copy and do not regret it.
