Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Jack London, his life and.... a lot more.

Jack London has been my favorite author for the better part of 60 years. A quick read of the short story "To Build a Fire" probably turned me on to his many talents.

Back when men were men, Jack lived and wrote their stories.

LINKed below is an excellent article that summarises his life. Worth the time IMHO.

That is an enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing.

I liked where it talks about young Jack becoming an accomplished drinker and brawler in waterfront saloons. Perfect training for the Alaska gold stampede. Lol.
