Love Of Life

by Jack London, Love Of Life Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Love Of Life books, It was the gosh-dangdest stampede I ever seen. A thousand dog-teams hittin' the ice. You couldn'tsee 'm fer smoke. Two white men an' a Swede froze to death that night, an' there was a dozenbusted their lungs. But didn't I see with my own eyes the bottom of the water-hole? It was yellowwith gold like a mustard-plaster. That's why I staked the Yukon for a minin' claim. That's whatmade the stampede. An' then there was nothin' to it. That's what I said-NOTHIN' to it. An' Iain't got over guessin' yet.-NARRATIVE OF SHORTY.John Messner clung with mittened hand to the bucking gee-pole and held the sled in the trail. Withthe other mittened hand he rubbed his cheeks and nose. He rubbed his cheeks and nose every littlewhile. In point of fact, he rarely ceased from rubbing them, and sometimes, as their numbnessincreased, he rubbed fiercely. His forehead was covered by the visor of his fur cap, the flaps ofwhich went over his ears. The rest of his face was protected by a thick beard, golden-brown underits coating of frost.Behind him churned a heavily loaded Yukon sled, and before him toiled a string of five dogs. Therope by which they dragged the sled rubbed against the side of Messner's leg. When the dogs swungon a bend in the trail, he stepped over the rope. There were many bends, and he was compelled tostep over it often. Sometimes he tripped on the rope, or stumbled, and at all times he was awkward, betraying a weariness so great that the sled now and again ran upon his heels.When he came to a straight piece of trail, where the sled could get along for a moment withoutguidance, he let go the gee-pole and batted his right hand sharply upon the hard wood. He found itdifficult to keep up the circulation in that hand. But while he pounded the one hand, he neverceased from rubbing his nose and cheeks with the other

THEY limped painfully down the bank, and once the foremost of the two men staggered among the rough-strewn rocks. They were tired and weak, and their faces had the drawn expression of patience which comes of hardship long endured. They were heavily burdened with blanket packs which were strapped to their shoulders. Head- straps, passing across the forehead, helped support these packs...

Love Of Life Other Stories Annotated

by Jack London1, Love Of Life Other Stories Annotated Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Love Of Life Other Stories Annotated books, A collection of eight short stories from American author, journalist, and social activist Jack London. Written during his 'Klondike' period, the title story 'Love of Life' follows the trek of a prospector across the Canadian tundra. Love of Life is a collection of short stories published by Jack London in 1907. These eight stories are all set in Alaska or the Yukon Territory, with the exception of one set in northern California which also touches on the subject of the Klondike gold rush. Though overall not his best work, the collection contains a few exceptional pieces that elevate it above the mediocre.Three stories stand out here as a cut above the rest. In "Negore, the Coward," a tribe of indigenous Alaskans flees a troop of pursuing Russian conquerors. In order to win the heart of the woman he loves, the titular character must redeem his tarnished reputation by bravely ensnaring the oppressors. In "The Sun Dog Trail," London's recurring character Sitka Charley, a Native trail guide for hire, recalls how he led a mysterious rich woman back and forth across the frozen North on a grueling, epic manhunt. "The Unexpected" tells of a brutal act of violence in a remote cabin. The survivors are left to figure out what to do with the perpetrator. When so far removed from civilization, do conventional notions of law and justice still have any meaning?
