Jack London reveals the secrets of surviving as a hobo in the late-nineteenth century. Before he became a best-selling author, London spent time traveling on the railways of North America - catching trains, dodging conductors, spending time in jail, lying his way into meals and out of trouble. His experience formed the basis of his storytelling skills, and gave him an enduring compassion for the underdogs in society. The Road is a collection of essays and tales which chronicles this formative period in his life. Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, but always compelling, The Road will take you to a forgotten chapter of North American life.

About the Author

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.
