9780061863196: The Secret Journeys of Jack London, Book One: The Wild

The world knows Jack London as a writer who lived his own real-life adventures. But there are some parts of his life that have remained hidden for many years, things even he couldn’t set down in writing. Terrifying, mysterious, bizarre, and magical—these are the Secret Journeys of Jack London.

Jack, age seventeen, journeys far into the Yukon Territory in search of gold and adventure. But what he finds in the wild reaches of the north freezes his blood: kidnapping and slavery, the murderous nature of desperate men, and, amidst it all, supernatural beasts of the wilderness that prey on the weakness in men’s hearts. Jack’s survival will depend on his ability to quell the demons within himself as much as those without.

From Booklist:

Imagining author Jack London as a 17-year-old adventurer is the easy partafter all, its not far from the truth. Golden and Lebbons gamble is peppering their story with the fantastic and supernatural, and it pays off. In this gung-ho series starter, Jack enters into the Yukon gold rush. However, an early winter puts him and his new friends through the gauntlet: a raging river, a frigid season spent starving in an isolated cabin, capture into the gold-panning slave trade. And those are the good months! Golden and Lebbon write with a gritty assurance that brings the fantasy elementsmost notably, Jacks multiple face-offs with the mythic Wendigodown to earth. The books second half stretches into dark folktale territory, as Jack finds himself being rescued by a mysterious woman whose love forms a kind of prison. Connections to Londons real life are everywhere: a wolf acts as Jacks spirit guide, and he literally learns the call of the wild. Occasional sketches add a bit of cinematic drama. Best of all, this first chapter kicks the door wide open for almost anything in book two. Grades 7-10. --Daniel Kraus
