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.
Roger Weston, author of The Golden Catch
other story in this set and a full story in their own right.
I strongly recommend this book.
