Jack London is an iconic American writer, social activist, mostly known as the author of adventure fiction. Many of his literary works, including novels and short stories, based on his own life experience and they have inspired numerous authors' works, and adaptations for television and film. During his short lifetime of forty years, London developed great passions for sailing, traveling, ranching, and his works encompass the myriad interests he embraced to the full. “Children of the Frost” is the collection of stories where Jack shows the wilderness exotic world extolling the virtues of the simple human life of Alaska. In each story Jack London manages to capture both the lives of the natives and the newcomers without seeming to judge each except through the eyes of the others. Through this collection of short stories he tells of the tragedies that befell both groups as they learned to live with each other in the American north.
