Jack London's tales of man's struggle against the forces of nature are universally popular. Best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, London was also a prolific writer of short stories. This collection brings together four of his finest, all depicting the harshness of life in the frozen arctic wastes.

'The Law of Life' and 'The White Silence' offer sensitive insights into the psychological state of men facing death in the wildness; the lure of gold grips the heartstrings of two opportunists with disastrous consequence in 'In a Far Country'; and 'An Odyssey of the North' recounts one man's painful quest to reclaim the women he loves.

The reader William Dufris has worked thoughout Britain and the United States in theatre and has made numerous television and radio appearances for the BBC.

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.
