Overview

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 - November 22, 1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone, including science fiction.
Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.
London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.

The Valley of the Moon (VM) is a book considered to be dated and unimportant to today's readers by some critics, which is why its physical availability is limited but it is being given a second chance at redemption thanks to the e-reader wars of the current digital age. VM is a multi-layered adventure story about a working class couple in love, who finds strength in their union and dare to make a better life for themselves in the rural areas of California. The main characters Saxon and Billy are working class and use dialect and language that are very plebeian but necessary to create realism in VM. VM is a book full of strong characters that will entertain you with escapades and have you discussing its meaning with friends. VM is a book that should not be forgotten that was written by one of the greatest authors of American adventure, Jack London.
