About the Author

Jack London, born in 1876 in San Francisco, California, was an American author best known for his adventurous tales set in the wilderness. Raised in poverty, London developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors, which heavily influenced his writing. He embarked on numerous journeys, including the Klondike Gold Rush, which provided inspiration for some of his most famous works. London's writing often explores themes of survival, human-animal relationships, and the struggle against nature. His most notable works include The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea-Wolf, which remain beloved classics of American literature. London's prolific literary career was cut short by his untimely death at the age of 40, but his legacy as one of the foremost writers of adventure fiction endures to this day.
