Irving Stone, in his insight and convincing recreation of historically influential people and days of yore bringing them once again alive and present, brought Jack London's life, family, physical surroundings and love of adventure out in such a way that I never wanted to see it end.
I have read many of Stone's biographical novels from The Agony and The Ecstasy to Depths of Glory to Lust for Life all incredible adventures of creative geniuses who struggled in many ways but understood that their creative mediums must be expressed. Sailor On Horseback is no different but one of Stone's lesser-known and should not be forgotton. I was discouraged to find that I must wait for a copy but found twice the wait would have been worth it.
There are many points in this biography which encouraged me to go back and reread Jack London's novels and short stories as if for the first time. For after reading Stone's depiction of London's self-reliant and rare view of the world his stories took on a new breath and meaning I never encountered the first time around.

One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE books! I started looking for it, to read again, some years ago. Could not track it down. Have been looking for it on and off until the light went off in my brain saying. AMAZON! Sure enough I had my choice of soft cover and hard covered. I am slowly rereading it, with yellow marker in hand, savioring every word. It is written by IRVIMG STONE, A fine story teller but not a great writer, having said that, it is a book which I am loving once again.
Jack London has an incredible history which Mr Stone walks you through slowly and with carefully to enable the reader to get the full impact of his background. Then we watch Jack grow and seek the knowledge and develop the inherited intellect to write his wonderful books. Books of great insight to mankind.
I am now pushing eighty and read this originally in my twentys. It had a great impact on how I viewed people and how I treated people. I know this book made me a better person. My sincere thanks AMAZON, for helping me find my book.

Many years ago someone, who I thought hardly knew my taste, gave me this book.
I couldn't put it down, and it lived in my mind for many years.
Finally, I just had to repurchase it, and enjoy it again!!
In addition just bought Jack London's The Road - which I am enjoying!
