Book Description

Jack London is the writer best known for his novels White Fang and The Call of the Wild, set in the Alaskan wilderness. Most, if not all of us, read these stories in high school. But they make up only a tiny facet of London's "Stories from the North". This is the complete collection of short stories and novels set in the barren wilds of Alaska, the Yukon and the Klondike, written by a man who experienced the life first-hand.

Read stories of adventure and hardship, white Americans and Alaskan Natives, accounts that are true to life. London's stories have been favorites of readers the world over since first they were published. This collection is a must for anyone really interested in his work. Also features a foreword from the editor and a brief biography of the author.

This collection includes the hard-to-find original edition of the often anthologized To Build a Fire.

This edition was NOT merely scanned from an ink-and-paper book, like many Kindle e-books are. All e-books offered by Di Lernia Publishers are hand-edited and checked for spelling and punctuation errors.

BEWARE - as of 4/17/12, this Amazon page is VERY misleadingly set up.

If you buy a paperback copy of JACK LONDON'S STORIES OF THE NORTH, you will most likely (as I did) receive a copy that has the exact SAME cover as the one shown in the upper left corner of this page - BUT its contents will be substantially LESS than what you are apparently promised by this page. Specifically, you will receive 69 fewer stories. If you click on the cover picture to read the Contents page, be aware that it refers ONLY to the Kindle version, NOT to the actual paperback book that is pictured.

The Apple Classics paperback book with this title was published in 1965 by Scholastic, Inc. It has a 4-page Introduction, competently written by Charles Rathbone of North Haven High School, North Haven, CT, plus 248 pages of short fiction. Its nine stories by Jack London, selected by Betty M. Owen, are "The White Man's Way," "The Story of Keesh," "The Sundog Trail," "Nam-Bok, the Unveracious," "To Build a Fire," "The Unexpected," "The Wife of a King," "The Son of Wolf," and "Love of Life."

Every one of these stories is a gem, and I happily include Jack London among my top ten favorite authors - BUT, as marketed here and linked to the Contents page of the vastly different Kindle version, this collection is a great disappointment.

I have no beef with the individual seller, and this is not a matter of "seller feedback" being mistakenly put into the "book review" section of Amazon. I do not expect that Amazon will ever correct this serious error in marketing. I do, however, hope that other buyers will see this informative WARNING and will not order the paperback expecting it to contain 78 great stories by London.

Open the cold pages of this volume at your peril. You will hear the howls of wolves, the quiet swish of knife blades, and the horrible crack of ice beneath your feet. Jack London was the master of Northland adventure.

Roger Weston, author of The Golden Catch

5.0 out of 5 stars Stories of the North by Jack London June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book of short stories by Jack London. Although I am Australian and live in a mild climate, the description of the cold as described by Jack London, had me reaching for my jacket. A number of authors writing short stories tend to repeat their themes in two or several of their stories, this is not true in this case, where each story is different to any
other story in this set and a full story in their own right.

I strongly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack London was a master story teller January 17, 2013
By wgk
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These stories were written a long time ago, I can tell by the superb command of our language and the number of words I was looking up. Jack London was a masterful.writer. I could almost feel his descriptions of the weather, hear the swiftness of flowing water and the smell of bacon frying on an open fire. I actually thought I was interacting with the characters he wrote about. I hated to see them go. It's fun to read and be entertained at the same time.These stories were better than a movie. B.K.

I read many of Jack Londons works when I was in Jr.High School. This is a great addition and allmost complete set of his works. I like the short stories with a moral. If you like the old North you will love this set of his works.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't really very impressed with this collection----I didn't get far into it before realizing that it wasn't going to be up to the storytelling standards expected of a "London" story---and I confess that I've put them back on the shelf for reading another day when I haven't anything else to read. Maybe I'm too harsh in my judgement ---but these illustrate pretty well that you get what you pay for.

One of the greatest storytellers of all time....I read some of his books when I was a youngster reading only Danish and now almost fifty years later it is great to read them again in English...
