"PLEASE, Miss, could I have something to read?" The time was 1886. The speaker was ten-year-old Jack London, shabbily clothed, carrying a bundle of old newspapers under his arm. The place was the Oakland Library and the occasion was Jack London's introduction to the world of literature. Here, too, began one of the world's great literary careers. Reading Jack London is to be a sailor on dogsled on Klondike gold fields or a sailor on a schooner hunting for seals in the Bering Sea. Here is a book that belongs on the shelf of every armchair adventurer. If you haven't read Jack London before, you won't want to stop. If you're already a Jack London fan, you know his stories and novels are even more exciting the second and third time around. Here are 46 of his finest stories and his giant novel of the boxing world, The Game. Here is an American original. During his time he was the best paid and most popular author in the world. Read Jack London and join the world!
