    I really enjoyed this, but in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm a huge Jack London fan. This is not a book like Call of the Wild or Martin Eden. Rather, it consists of short vignettes that are, on their immediate face, about indigenous people in the Pacific Northwest. Really, though, the vignettes describe the human condition in general, from greed and spite to love and loyalty--and everything in between. Loved it.

    This collection of stories, though set in the frozen wastes of the Yukon during the "Gold Rush", is timeless. As man and his technologies advance and his search for wealth continues, time-honored and primitive ways are pushed aside. London expertly illustrates this same experience through the indigenous peoples of the north and the "white" man. He makes it easy for the reader to identify with the native's point of view, and to understand the perplexity they experienced dealing with these strange new men with "fire in their blood". London puts the reader at the council fire of great chiefs, in the canoes of warriors, and in the lodges of mysterious shamans and "medicine" men. These stories are not only about man's struggle with nature, but with other men and perhaps the most difficult...himself. After reading these stories, I felt myself wanting to up and leave all traces of modern civilization behind. I wanted to build an igloo, put on a sealskin coat, and carve things on ivory tusks in front of a roaring fire!
