This ebook is based on a compilation created by MobileRead member Roy White in 2007. I have added several pieces, and tweaked spelling and punctuation.

Here is what Roy had to say:

If you’ve never read these I HIGHLY! recommend. Very fun stories full of the silence of ice and hunger of the Wolf set against the iron will of Men determined to dream and suffer their way to find that Eldorado Gold strike making them rich beyond their dreams. These stories are full of irony and rich in humor.

Jack London spent a few years mining for Gold in the Klondike, and when he finally called it quits returned home with four bucks 50 cents in his pocket… And the true treasure of this Genre he created himself.

(White Fang and Call of the Wild are not part of this collection, nor any of his other Klondike Novels.)

I love these. The descriptions make me feel as if I’m in the Klondike, my pulse pounding and back breaking, sure that my next shovelful of ice and mud will show that elusive color.
Enjoy! And strike it big.

— Roy

John Griffith Chaney (January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916), better known as Jack London, was an American novelist, journalist, and activist. A pioneer of commercial fiction and American magazines, he was one of the first American authors to become an international celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing.

His most famous works are adventure stories set in in Alaska and the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush, such as The Call of the Wild, White Fang, “To Build a Fire”, “An Odyssey of the North”, and “Love of Life”. He also wrote about the South Pacific and about adventures at sea. He was also an innovator in the genre that would later become known as science fiction, and wrote tales of fantasy and mystery & suspense.
