Publisher's summary

In The Road, Jack London embraces the concepts of unconfined individualism and Darwinism through his autobiographical account of his time riding the rails of Canada and the United States. The author of White Fang, The Call of the Wild, and Sea Wolf, relays the time leading up to turning point in his life - a perfunctory trial and a 30-day imprisonment in the Erie County Penitentiary for the crime of vagrancy - an experience so degrading that he turned to a career in writing. This tale of rugged individualism influenced Jack Kerouac and inspired his tale, On the Road. Simultaneously autobiographical and instructional, The Road wryly presents a way of life that embodies wanderlust and the soul's search for true freedom.
