Jack London, January 1876 - November 1916

In the summer of 1897, at the age of 21, Jack London camped in the Whitehorse area after running Miles Canyon and the Whitehorse Rapids. He then went down river to spend fall through spring at Dawson City, Stewart Island and Henderson Creek. In August 1898 he returned to his Oakland California home. The influence of the North was evident in his 5 novels and 65 short stories. Two of his novels, “The Call of the Wild” and “White Fang” were bestsellers and drew world-wide attention to the Yukon. His short story “To Build a Fire” generally ascribed to contain the most poignant descriptions of the cold ever written.
