Quotes & Awards

  • “The name Jack London is synonymous with adventure, masculinity, and wilderness. This diverse collection of recordings, however, transcends these preconceived notions. There’s adventure, to be sure, but London’s tales are not limited to the Klondike…Each narrator lends his own contemporary feel to this production through lively pacing and a knowledgeable navigation of the author’s syntax. Lastly, listeners will appreciate the stylish transitions between stories; a brief musical interlude and a measured offering of the next title are nice touches that allow the resolution of one story and the anticipation of the next.”

    " London's "The Call of the Wild" is a beautiful and emotional depiction of the life of a dog born and raised in a loving environment. He is betrayed and has to cope with life in the wild. "

    " A wonderful, quick read. I loved that it was written from the perspective of the dog, and while London clearly has an idealistic view of nature, I enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, I enjoyed it because he painted nature in such a vibrant, idealistic way. "

    " I read this along with my 7th graders in my internship this semester. I'm not sure I really like this type of story, but Jack London was definitely a very good writer, and creative to be able to write from a dog's perspective. "

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.
