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.]

I plan to leave this book somewhere at the Nathan Hale Homestead while stopping by this afternoon. Hope the finder enjoys it!

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!
