This unique book combines long excerpts of Jack London's literature with a copious amount of his photographs. It beautifully juxtaposes his worldwide famous literature with his incredible photographs, creating a dialogue between the visual and literary arts and building towards a complete understanding of the eclectic and versatile artist London. The texts collected in the book are excerpts of some of the author's books: The People of the Abyss (1903); The Russo-Japanese War (1904), with two articles from the San Francisco Examiner ; The San Francisco Earthquake (1906); and The Cruise of the Snark . Sixty-nine black and white photographs of his adventures join the texts creating the artistic connection between visual and literary art that lies at the roots of London's art.
