This collection of Jack London's short stories touches on a variety of topics, from his love of boxing, to relationships between criminals, to the trials of life and travel on many frontiers, to an allegory about a king who desired a nose. London is considered a master of the short story, a form much more to his liking and personality than his novels. He was active and quick of mind and the short story suited him well. - Summary by Don W. Jenkins (5 hr 6 min)

Worst stories I ever listened to. Everyone has tragic ending. Everyone considers the God of this creation only wants to torture His children and takes delight in their misery. Sorry I wasted my time listening to all of them in the hope at least one had a silver lining in the clouds that darkly covered the lot. Not at all like Jack London.

fantastic stories

These stories really hit home and land heavy. Jack London is a master and these tales were great to listen to. They were well read. I highly recommend a listen!

Great stories by Jack London. Fine reading too.
