Read full description of the books:
We need London's mythical wolf almost as much as we need the wildernesses of the world, for without such ghost-animals from the depths of the human subconscious we are alone with the depths of the human subconscious we are alone with ourselves." -From the Introduction
This volume of the best of Jack London’s famed stories of the North includes The Call of the Wild, London’s masterpiece about a dog learning to survive in the wilderness, along with “Bâtard,” “Love of Life,” and White Fang, the story of a wild dog’s acclimation to the world of men, generally considered the companion piece to The Call of the Wild.
In his Introduction, James Dickey probes London’s strong personal and literary identification with the wolf-dog as symbol and totem. Andrew Sinclair, London’s official biographer and the volume’s editor, provides a brief account of London’s life a sailor, desperado, socialist, adventurer, and acclaimed author.

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.
