Jack London (January 12, 1876- November 22, 1916) was a prolific turn of the century author and journalist best known for his adventure novels set in the great American West. His novels, including The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and Martin Eden, placed London among the most celebrated western authors of his time. London was also a leading journalist and an outspoken socialist. He authored about 300 short stories, novels, poems, and articles during his brief 40 years of life.
