Description


The five notable novels from Jack London are collected in thisvolume for the adventurer in everyone."The Call of the Wild," Jack London's secondnovel, made him truly famous. Published without any great expectations for commercial success, the story of the pet dog turned wolf pack leader became a huge bestseller. "White Fang," like "The Call of the Wild," explores the theme of contrast between civilization and savagery when a wild wolf cub is brought up by humans only to become a champion fighting dog. "The Game" revolves around boxing, London's favorite sport. Joe Fleming is a prize fighter and, on the eve of his wedding, his fiancee agrees to watch his last ever fight. "The Scarlet Plague," first published in 1912, tells of a disease that wipes out most of the world's population in 2012. The story is set 60years later as one of the survivors attempts to pass on a lifetime of wisdom and experience to his grandsons. "The Star Rover" is a prison tale in which the main character endures torture sessions by entering a trance-like state, when he walks among the stars and experiences past lives.
