A Daughter of the Snows


Read by Don W. Jenkins

(4.3 stars; 28 reviews)

In Jack London's first novel, he tells the story of Frona Welse, a strong and interesting heroine, "a Stanford graduate and physical Valkyrie," who heads to the Yukon gold fields after creating a stir in her hometown by being strong and forthright and by befriending the town's prostitute. In the course of her adventures, she finds herself at the distaff point of a love triangle. This novel contains very overt racial and gender stereotypes and as such reflects the attitudes growing in society at the time it was written. It is the practice at Librivox to record works as they stand, without judgment. - Summary by Don W. Jenkins

VIVID DESCRIPTIONS

(4.5 stars)

London lived several lives, but it is obvious from his stories that he preferred the great frozen north. Less bitterness and more joie de vivre are evident. Chapter xxv is as gripping as any that one is likely to encounter.

good listen
