About the Author
John Griffith "Jack" London (1876 - 1916) was an American novelist, journalist and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone, including science fiction. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in 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" and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss and The War of the Classes. --Wikipedia

Many of `Daylight's' exploits are noted by his companions and townsfolk. These deeds range from high-stake poker to record time dog sledding mail runs to building a town practically by himself after having done quite well gold prospecting.
After Daylight pretty much accomplishes all he can in Alaska he decides to try his luck in California in the business game. Here he is also quite successful with a few mishaps where people thought he could be easily duped.
Daylight gradually slides into complacency about all things except his business. He soon meets a woman and becomes smitten, but she wants nothing to do with him because she sees he's married already - to his work and he's no longer the tough, hard Alaskan man that many years ago had moved to California.
Daylight spends most of the rest of the story attempting to woo this young woman. He succeeds only after giving up everything else.
A once hard man turns soft because and for love. Not my preferential reading but at least the first three-quarters of the story was worth reading. I give it four for it's literary quality, overall.
I do love Jack London's books and stories.....White Fang and The Call Of The Wild. I've reread them over and over. So I'll probably reread Burning Daylight.
Burning Daylight is , basically, a tale of a "niechean like superman" in "turn of the century" garb. An epic story and the best "love story" I've ever read. If you like this, then head on over to "Martin Eden" for the best Tragedy ever written

I think is a little bit improbable, like cinderella story upside down
