Love of Life and Other Stories (1906) is a collection of short stories by American writer Jack London. Containing eight stories by the author, a master of literary Naturalism and an experienced outdoorsman and adventurer, Love of Life and Other Stories explores the experience of humanity on the edge of civilization. Set mostly in Canada and Alaska, these stories follow characters for whom survival is a constant struggle, for whom death is as familiar as a friend. ?Love of Life? follows a gold prospector who is abandoned by his companion when he sprains his ankle crossing a creek. Shocked at first, he quickly realizes that in order to survive, he must keep moving. As he makes his was through the Canadian wilderness eating berries and weeds, his only desire is to have just one more bullet with which to hunt for wild game. As day turns to night, and as the next day fades to another, he faces a hunger beyond description, an emptiness food cannot fill. In ?A Day?s Lodging,? a man retires for the night at a cabin he discovers in the wintry Yukon woods. As he settles in and prepares to feed his team of sled dogs, two strangely familiar adventurers arrive and ask to share the cabin for the night. Love of Life and Other Stories is a masterful collection of short fiction by Jack London, an icon of adventure writing. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jack London?s Love of Life and Other Stories is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.
