Books I Love

I know you have heard of Jack London.  He wrote “The Call of the Wild,” ” White Fang,” and other stories based in the north.  I read those two books in my youth. London had the ability to draw you into the story with his words, giving a mental picture of his tale.

Recently, a friend mentioned a story London wrote that I was unaware of.  There is an audio version on YouTube, so I listened to it.  The title is “To Build a Fire.”  This story is based in Alaska/Canada.  It is about a man’s experience traveling on foot in very cold weather.  It is a story you won’t soon forget.  You can listen to it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8WnlrUKsBU or you can download here http://www.jacklondons.net/buildafire.html to read.
