Born on January 12, 1876 in San Francisco, Jack London was an American author and journalist. He is best known for the adventure novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang. These classic books are still popular today and helped leap London into great fame.
London briefly attended the University of California, but had to leave during his freshman year for lack of money. He worked in the Klondike, where his Alaska experiences influenced much of his literary work. He also went to Korea as a war correspondent. London faced several health issues toward the end of his life. He died at his ranch in November 1916. He was 40.
