The Irvine RanchBook - 1962
In Jack London & the Klondike Franklin Walker presents for the first time an accurate and detailed account of the young London's experiences in the famous gold rush that furnished the substance for his most successful books. His exciting winter in the Yukon is recreated through quotations from his fiction, travel diaries, and the testimony of his companions. First published in 1966, at a time when London was still regarded by many as little more than a writer of stories for children, this was to be the first of many studies of his outstanding contributions to literature. The book remains a definitive study of the most crucial phase of Jack London's career.
