At the turn of the century, the short story form gained enormous popularity. As readers looked for diversion and entertainment, they found the attraction of a good tale irresistible—especially when the action was packed into a few pages instead of a hundred.

Here are three timeless stories that will whisk you into exotic lands and unforgettable adventures. Against the frozen Alaskan landscape of “To Build a Fire,” a miner struggles to survive the splintering whiteness of sub-zero temperatures. “Isle of Voices” captures the Hawaii of old, where magic transports a young man to an island of powerful spirits. “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” pits a mongoose against a cobra in the steamy beauty of an Indian garden.

Recorded Books’ award-winning narrators turn these three adventure stories into absorbing audio productions. Listen as their dramatic performances bring out the full richness of far-off lands and breathtaking challenges.

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.
