WORDSWORTH™ is pleased to announce
the distribution of two best-selling,
critically-acclaimed books about Jack London . . .


 Jack London’s Klondike Adventure
 

This is the thrilling story of one man’s rush for riches and his desire to escape the lifelong poverty he had always known. For Jack London, this challenging journey of more than 10,000 miles changed his life . . . and the course of American literature. Dodging avalanches, braving frozen lakes, navigating dangerous whitewater rapids, and surviving a deadly-cold Klondike winter, London overcame scurvy, hardships, and dire disappointments to encounter heroism, human kindness, and majestic landscapes. This definitive account — the most complete and most authentic on the subject to date — details Jack’s adventurous quest for gold.

This book includes maps, historic photographs, and documents, some never before published.

Written by Mike Wilson, noted author, lecturer, and historian. Mike creates a fascinating look into the world of the Klondike Gold Rush as well as one of its most famous participants. And, who better to relate this amazing story than an acknowledged Jack London expert who has portrayed Jack London in the first person for more than a dozen years!

The Wit and Wisdom of Jack London

A Collection of Quotations from his Writing and Letters
 

Who was the fascinating man behind the legend? Forget all the rumors. In this book, you can read Jack’s thoughts and ideas . . . in his own words. More insightful than an autobiography, London’s words offer a direct glimpse into his life, mind, and spirit. His words reflect his multi-faceted personality — direct, enthusiastic, intelligent, passionate, and at times, brutally frank. This collection of quotations — the most comprehensive to date — from Jack London’s writings and letters allow us to better understand who he was — his dreams, his doubts, and frustrations. By publishing these words, Jack London speaks for himself.

This book also contains a Chronology of Jack London’s life . . . one of the most complete and accurate chronologies in existence!

Edited by Margie Wilson, professional editor and writer for more than 30 years. Her honors include inclusion in Who’s Who in the West, The Dictionary of International Biography, and selection as one of the “2000 Outstanding Women of the 20th Century” and one of the “2000 Outstanding Scholars of the 20th Century”.
