My favourite story in the bunch has to do with a man chasing a fellow all the way down the rivers of the Yukon to the Pacific. The sheer adventurousness of the tales and the audacity of several characters makes them a joy to read. I recommend these tales to anyone, really - young or old, those who enjoy action or drama. They are a testament to London's skill. Aug 19, Viktor Malafey rated it it was amazing. To Build a Fire is not only the best short story in this collection, it is London 's best. The other stories are also worth a gander.
