I got this good-condition softcover from the ongoing book-sale at the Milford NH public library, for another release copy. It contains a number of London's stories, including the classic title story "To Build A Fire". That one's an oft-anthologized tale about a traveler in the frozen North, whose self-confidence receives a blow when a series of minor incidents make him realize just how thin a line can lie between safety and disaster... Other stories touch on different aspects of life in the frozen North - but London didn't just write about the Yukon, and this collection includes tales set in Mexico and Hawaii and other far-flung locales.

[There's a 2003 film version of "To Build a Fire". And this TV Tropes page has some entertaining tidbits about the tale.]

Found this book at Nathan Hale Homestead. Pretty cool because I grew up near Oakland and visited Jack London Square often but never read any of his books. Now's the perfect chance!
