Description
Jack London was born a working-class, fatherless Californian in 1876. In his youth he was an energetic adventurer on the coast. He spent his brief life accumulating the experiences that were reflected in his books The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea-Wolf. Here the award-winning biographer of Sam Houston explores the forgotten London, at once a hard-living globetrotter and a man alive with ideas and contradictions. He chronicled nature at its most savage yet wept helplessly at the deaths of his favorite animals; at his peak he was the highest-paid writer in America, yet he remained constantly in need of money. An irrepressible crusader for social justice, as James Haley draws him, London burned himself out at 40; sick, angry, and disillusioned, he nonetheless left behind a voluminous literary legacy, ripe for rediscovery.

"James L. Haley's sharply focused biography recaptures the breadth of London's achievements and the intricacies of his personality.... We can be grateful to Haley for restoring London to us in all his passionate conviction and flawed humanity."Washington Post
