About the Author:

Jack London (1876-1916) was born John Chaney in Pennsylvania, USA. In 1896 he was caught up in the gold rush to the Klondike river in north-west Canada, which became the inspiration for The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906). Jack London became one of the most widely read writers in the world.

From the Back Cover:

The Iron Heel transcends genre, juxtaposing science fiction, social polemic and timeless romance. But most significantly, it serves as a warning - unheeded at its time of publication - which is as relevant today as when it was written.
