Publisher's description: This unique book combines long excerpts of Jack London's literature with a copious amount of his photographs. It beautifully juxtaposes his worldwide famous literature with his incredible photographs, creating a dialogue between the visual and literary arts and building towards a complete understanding of the eclectic and versatile artist London.

Sixty-nine black and white photographs of his adventures join the texts creating the artistic connection between visual and literary art that lies at the roots of London's art.
