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

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 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.

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.

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.

These are great reads. They are all together, and some of them have characters that overlap from one story to another, so that is cool that they are in order. I had not read all of these. Love London.

I have enjoyed Jack London stories since I was in the 6th grade mainly because of the adventure aspect to a boy in a routine Midwest agricultural and factory town. Where the most exciting thing to do was to go down to the Mississippi river and fish or hunt. Jack London caught the mind of an imaginative, adventure-starved boy and took me away on adventures to far-away places. I would recommend Jack London stories for any young men/boys with an interest in adventure
