More About Jack London


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jack London (1876-1916) spent his youth on the waters of San Francisco Bay. In 1897, when gold was discovered in the Klondike, he obtained a grubstake and spent a freezing, fruitless winter in the Far North; by spring he was ready to return home to write. In 1900, his collection of short stories The Son of the Wolf was published. Two more volumes of Yukon short stories, a juvenile novel, and a Klondike novel followed in rapid succession. Then came his bestselling novel The Call of the Wild (1903) and the beginning of the years that were to bring him wealth and worldwide popularity. The eternal traveler, London served as a correspondent in Japan and Mexico and sailed his own ketch to the Solomon Islands before his death.
John Seelye is a leading American Studies scholar and Graduate Research Professor of American literature at the University of Florida at Gainesville. He is the author of a number of books, including The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Prophetic Waters: The River in Early American Life.
Michael Meyer, Ph.D., is professor of English at the University of Connecticut. Among his books, Several More Lives to Live: Thoreau s Political Reputation in America was awarded the Ralph Henry Gabriel Prize by the American Studies Association. In addition to The Bedford Introduction to Literature, his edited volumes include Frederick Douglass: The Narrative and Selected Writings."

Jack London was born in 1876 and died in 1916.
