BURNING DAYLIGHT begins as many of London's finest works begin: with the depiction of a man blessed with physical prowess and keen perception who takes on the natural forces of the 19th century Yukon. Supreme gold miner, risk-all gambler, and unbeatable fighter, Burning Daylight is his name. Daylight moves from the Yukon to San Francisco, and plays "the  bigger game of finance and wealth," until he is reminded of something he lost, something pure and good. And with this discovery, London turns his standard format into the finest love story he ever crafted and BURNING DAYLIGHT becomes much more than a simple adventure. Download and start listening now!

    " A pretty good novel with a not-so-subtle naive socialist theme. I recall it reading almost like two novellas: Part 1--prospector gets rich, becomes capitalist; Part 2--capitalism saps prospector's vitality, prospector goes back to wilderness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 7/24/2008

    " One of London's lesser known novels, this book is a great read... a moving story of sacrificial love. "

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
