About the Book

Burning Daylight was Jack London's best selling book during his lifetime. The book begins as a two-fisted macho adventure on the Klondike, as the hero--nicknamed Burning Daylight--becomes the most successful entrepreneur during the Alaskan Gold Rush. After acheiving his fame and fortune, he finds no more challenge in the north and heads to the States for new worlds to conquer. He is flim-flammed out of his fortune by Wall Streeters, learns the lesson of dog-eat-dog, and becomes as much of a scoundrel as those who robbed him.

About the Edition

A prospector nicknamed Burning Daylight strikes it rich during the Alaskan Gold Rush, but after he's cheated out of his fortune by crooks on Wall Street, he becomes a scoundrel. Moving to Oakland, California, he buys property, and sets up utilities and public transportation systems through overbearing and shady tactics. He becomes self-indulgent with drink and food. And then, for the first time, he falls in love.
