Five great Short Stories, by Jack London, Dover Publications, New York, 1992.
These stories are well titled, they are great. They are taken from some of Jack London's books, Tales of the far North, South Sea tales and The Night-born. It shows London was a much broader writer than just the Klondike north, although that is were he produced his best work. The characters in these stories are fascinating. He writes of the South Pacific, and he writes of the Mexican Revolution, as well as the far North. He tells the story of a Native, whose wife is stolen and spends his life trying to find her, and when he does, she does not want him back, of two men who are bound to kill each other, of the death of another man on the winter trail, of the guiding of a boat which is on fire, and lastly of a young revolutionary. I was drawn into to each of the stories and enjoyed them.
