    London, Jack
    One hundred years ago, Jack London was a celebrity. Not only was he one of the most popular and highest-paid novelists of his day, but also he was widely known as a political lecturer, socialist, adventurer, sailor, world traveler, farmer, and charismatic media-magnet. As one of the first authors to use his fame to endorse advertising products, London was comfortable in the spotlight. His books were widely known and continue to be internationally popular today.
    London was born in 1876 in Oakland, California to a single mother who eventually remarried. He developed a taste for travel and adventure at a very young age. By the time he started high school, young Jack had already worked in a cannery, sailed for Japan on a sealing ship, traveled around the country and spent 30 days in a New York jail for vagrancy. And that was just the beginning of a lifetime of adventure. His next trip, after high school in 1897, was to the Yukon in search of gold and soon afterward his creative energies poured forth. Returning to California, he began to concentrate on writing, forcing himself to write 1,000 words a day. By 1899 his stories were being published in the Atlantic Monthly and other magazines.
    With such an interesting history, it is no surprise that LondonĂ?¢s personal experiences are believed to have inspired some of his best work.

    Jack London (John Griffith) (1876-1916)
    Jack London, whose life symbolized the power of will, was the most successful writer in America in the early 20th Century. His vigorous stories of men and animals against the environment, and survival against hardships were drawn mainly from his own experience. An illegitimate child, London passed his childhood in poverty in the Oakland slums. At the age of 17, he ventured to sea on a sealing ship. The turning point of his life was a thirty-day imprisonment that was so degrading it made him decide to turn to education and pursue a career in writing. His years in the Klondike searching for gold left their mark in his best short stories; among them, The Call of the Wild, and White Fang. His best novel, The Sea-Wolf, was based on his experiences at sea. His work embraced the concepts of unconfined individualism and Darwinism in its exploration of the laws of nature. He retired to his ranch near Sonoma, where he died at age 40 of various diseases and drug treatments.

    Jack London (1876-1916) , iconic American author wrote Call of the Wild Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was brewing, not alone for himself, but for every tide-water dog, strong of muscle and with warm, long hair, from Puget Sound to San Diego. Because men, groping in the Arctic darkness, had found a yellow metal, and because steamship and transportation companies were booming the find, thousands of men were rushing into the Northland. These men wanted dogs, and the dogs they wanted were heavy dogs, with strong muscles by which to toil, and furry coats to protect them from the frost.Ch. 1 With Buck the dog as protagonist, London exposes the fine line between civility and the violence of nature, and the at-times harsh and cruel world created by men in their greed for fame and fortune. Cleverly portraying the animals' point of view White Fang (1906) follows similar themes. As the two most popular novels of London's based on his own life experiences in the Yukon, 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, travelling, ranching, and the wilderness, and his works encompass the myriad interests he embraced to the full.

    London, Jack,
    pseudonym of JOHN GRIFFITH CHANEY (b. Jan. 12, 1876, San Francisco, Calif., U.S.d. Nov. 22, 1916, Glen Ellen, Calif.), American novelist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. He is one of the most extensively translated of American authors. London studied magazines and then set himself a daily schedule of producing sonnets, ballads, jokes, anecdotes, adventure stories, or horror stories, steadily increasing his output. The optimism and energy with which he attacked his task are best conveyed in his autobiographical novel Martin Eden (1909), perhaps his most enduring work. Within two years stories of his Alaskan adventures, though often crude, began to win acceptance for their fresh subject matter and virile force. His first book, The Son of the Wolf (1900), gained a wide audience. During the remainder of his life he produced steadily, completing 50 books of fiction and nonfiction in 17 years. Although he became the highest-paid writer in the United States, his earnings never matched his expenditures, and he was never freed of the urgency of writing for money. He sailed a ketch to the South Pacific, telling of his adventures in The Cruise of the Snark (1911). In 1910 he settled on a ranch near Glen Ellen, Calif., where he built his grandiose Wolf House. He maintained his socialist beliefs almost to the end of his life.

    The House of Happy Walls (Museum)
    Built by Charmian London in 1919-26, this house is similar to Wolf House in some ways - the Spanish-style roof tiles and walls of field stone, for example - but it is much smaller and more formal. Charmian lived here whenever she was not traveling abroad or staying with relatives. After her death in 1955 at the age of 84, her will directed that the house be used as a memorial to Jack London and as a museum that would house the London collection of photographs and exhibits about the life and adventures of the world-famous author. It also contains a park visitor center where you can purchase books by and about Jack London.
    Much of the furniture in the house was designed by the Londons and custom-built for use in Wolf House. The library is furnished with equipment from London's study. The big roll top desk, the Dictaphone, and some of the other items on exhibit here appear in old photographs showing London at work.
