Published in 1906 by MacMillan, White Fang was written as a follow up to Call of the Wild, seeking to feed off the popularities of that first book. It follows the birth of the 'wolf-dog, White Fang,... More > including the circumstances of his arrival for his parents, his subsequent adoption by an Indian Tribe during which time he is brutalised and reacts accordingly, his time as a fighting dog and finally his taming by a kindly gold prospector. In contract to Buck's story in Call of the Wild, which moved from domestication to instinct, White Fang moves in the opposite direction and though he ends his time equally mythologised, in some respects it’s a less climactic path with the tension easing if a little unevenly. Even if it doesn't work quite as well as the first book, White Fang still remains immensely popular.< Less

When he becomes engaged to Genevieve, the narrator, he decides to... More > take one more fight before giving up. He persuades Genevieve to watch and her viewpoint as a narrator provides London with the opportunity to describe, in excruciating detail, the fight that ensues. It's clear from this description that London knew his business, but it's also obvious that he wasn't taken in by the glamour. The game, like any London Klondike story, is a brutal piece of writing.< Less

Published in 1915 by MacMillan, The Little House of the Big House is, by modern terms, an understated erotic novel centred around a love triangle between on the one side, rancher Dick Forrest... More > (associated with Jack London), his vivacious and overtly sexual wife Paula, (associated with London's wife, Charmian) and the hobo philosopher Aaron Hancock, (associated with London's house-guest, Frank Strawn-Hamilton). The novel was criticised on publication for being too erotic, although by modern standards its nowhere near explicit enough to give any notion to the description. That said, London managed to provide a distinctly sexual charge to the narrative that is as strong as many of his intense Klondike adventures.< Less

Published in 1901, The God of his Fathers, is an early collection of London's Klondike stories. Amongst this collection is Grit of Women, a tale told second hand over a stove that is 'red hot and... More > roaring', while outside the temperature has plummeted. The tale is about an epic journey to the Bering Sea made by a man and his wife and while the man, Sitka Charley, seems like the stuff the north was made of, it is the wife, Passuk, initially timid and downward looking, who emerges as the one with heart.< Less
