Experience first-hand the dramatic ebb and flow of emotion as classic literature is transformed into the world of your imagination like never before. After being separated from his partner in the lonely tundra of Canada, one man struggles to survive an unforgettable journey through time, hunger, and insanity.

Only one emotion could sustain him through such a bleak, treacherous, never-ending twist of mountains against the fearful loom of oncoming winter. Only one feeling could overcome countless days without food, dwindling supplies, wild animals, bleeding ankles, and persistent hallucinations. Soggy moss, icy water, human bones, and the dramatic vision of a ship that may or may not be real...were all only temporary obstacles to the grand motivation within, the indestructible love of life. This is a classic tale of adventure by one of America's most treasured authors.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 3/30/2011

    " Julia London has put everything in this book. Love, deception, deceitful siblings, wealth, poverty, seduction and class distinction makes this a witty and fun book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 2/8/2011

    " Though mistaken identities are fine, the play on social classes is not my favorite as far as plot lines go. That said, I ended up misty-eyed at the conclusion of the story. Some lovely interactions between the protagonists. "

    " An awesome read. I remember being unable to put this book down until I finished it! "

    " Thought the storyline was a bit flimsy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 8/20/2010

    " A very enjoyable escape read. London creates visual fantasies (wild horses, etc) that are quite wonderful. A fun, suspenseful read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 8/8/2010

    " I really liked this one because I like historical books about fashion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aviva | 7/21/2010

    " Delightful, light reading by an author I always enjoy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marianna | 4/13/2010

    " It was fine enough, but there wasn't enough juiciness for my taste. Or character depth for that matter. All the mains wanted to do was sex, which is fine...but really, yawn. "I have the fever!" Okaaay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 11/7/2009

    " 3 stars. Couldn't really get into this one until towards the end. Might be because I didn't care for the hero at first, and I didn't like his family through most of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloriavirtutisumbra | 6/30/2009

    " I completely admit staying up until 2am reading this to find out what happens in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kit | 6/19/2009

    " I loved this ending to the Desperate Debutantes trilogy. It was a one sitting read, I couldn't put it down. Yes, Will's family was obnoxious and he didn't always behave consistently but it still made for a unique and satisfying love story. "

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.
