All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.This edition of To Build a Fire and Other Stories includes an Introduction, Biographical Note, and Afterword by David Lubar.It was so cold that his spit froze in the air before it hit the ground. He was so far above the Artic Circle that the sun never rose. Seventy below zero, and there was nothing but whiteness in every direction: ice and snow. No trees, no houses, no wood, no warmth.He had only a few matches and a handful of frozen fingers. And yet, to survive, he had to build a fire....Jack London's tales of adventure were unsurpassed because London was there. From Alaska to the Yukon, from the Klondike to the Arctic tundra, London knew the outlaws and the wolves, the prospectors and the grizzlies. In these collected stories of man against the wilderness, London lays claim to the title of greatest outdoor adventure writer of all time.
