Editorial Reviews

Dramatic, frightening, and, at times, emotional, master narrator Frank Muller matches the slow, deliberate pace of these stories with a sly smile at the edge of his lips. He knows nature will win, at least most times, but uses his voice to recount the time-honored tales of survival with just the right number of dramatic pauses and hair-raising emphases. Listeners may find themselves with their fingers curled tightly into their palms as Muller guides them through this forest of manly struggles.

Good book. But.....

I find Jack London's stories to be entertaining and an insight into the Gold Rush day's of the Klondike. However, the narration of this book leaves a lot to be desired. The audio quality is barely adequate. One can easily see how much the technology has improved since its recording in the early 1980's. If you like short stories then you will probably find this book enjoyable, but it is hard to listen to.
