Book Excerpt: 
. . .Hear them whine! How they hated the work and the trail! They were off! Sled after sled churned slowly away into the silence. They were gone. They had passed out of his life, and he faced the last bitter hour alone. No. The snow crunched beneath a moccasin; a man stood beside him; upon his head a hand rested gently. His son was good to do this thing. He remembered other old men whose sons had not waited after the tribe. But his son had. He wandered away into the past, till the young man's voice brought him back.

"Is it well with you?" he asked.

And the old man answered, "It is well."

"There be wood beside you," the younger man continued, "and the fire burns bright. The morning is gray, and the cold has broken. It will snow presently. Even now is it snowing."

"Ay, even now is it snowing."

Jack London võib ju klassik olla aga need teosed mida mina olen tema sulest lugenud on kuidagi robustsed ja venivad.

Antud lühijuttude kogumikuga ei saanud ma algul vedama ja siis enam pidama. Londoni kirjakeel on lihtne aga kuidagi ei haara kaasa.

Nii nagu "Lõunamere juttudes", nii olid ka "Külma...more

This is a delightful collection of stories by Jack London. I picked it up at Jack London Park in Sonoma County, which, incidentally, is a great place to visit and learn more about this literary icon.
My favorite stories include "Nam-Bok," and "The League of Old Men." I don't know whether the stori...more

Collection of short stories all set in the frozen north.

The author does go overboard, however, in one story where he depicts the white man a tribe sa...more

With the mythical northwest passage reopening, these stories have renewed magic

Jack London's writing is famous with good reason. One of the lines that caught me early on in this series of short stories was "The world's explorers have known it, from time to time, but hitherto they have never retur...more

it was one of the best books I have ever read. My favorite part of the entire book was when the soldiers went camping Great job Jack London. I would recommended this book to all of my friends and family members.

A bit brutal, but great writing.

Some critics consider Jack London’s short tales far superior to his insanely popular novels “Call of the Wild” and “White Fang”. I don’t know if they are right, but I am quite sure he was one of the greatest short story writers of all time, right along Poe, Hoffmann and Maupassant, exerting enorm...more
