Who was Jack London?

Jack London was 21 in 1897, when he sailed to the Klondike to seek his fortune.

He returned to California the next year missing four front teeth because of scurvy, but gaining a head full of stories.

It has been said that Robert Service and Jack London (The Call of the Wild) most significantly defined the north and popularized the adventure of the gold rush through their writings.

See our new epub:
The Call of the Wild

The Men That Don't Fit In


There’s a race of men that don’t fit in,
A race that can’t stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin,
And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and they rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain’s crest;
Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don’t know how to rest.

If they just went straight they might go far;
They are strong and brave and true;
But they’re always tired of the things that are,
And they want the strange and new.
They say: “Could I find my proper groove,
What a deep mark I would make!”
So they chop and change, and each fresh move
Is only a fresh mistake.

From a reader.....
Perfect timing! I just passed my 12 year old son his new novel study – Call of the Wild! These ballads will be a perfect supplement for him this month as he reads about the Yukon! Thank you so much! Larissa
