Format

Summary
Most people remember Jack London as the author of Call of the Wild but Jack London, is the quintessential modern hero, who during his lifetime rose from poverty to become the highest paid, most controversial and most popular writer in the world. Jack London had to drop out of school in the eighth grade to help support his family. Not willing to play the role of the work-beast society had cast him in, Jack rebelled and became an outlaw. Realizing the life of an outlaw had its own type of conformity with its bleak aspect of prison and quick death, he confronted the hypocrisy of the society in which he lived and changed his behavior through self-education. Eventually, by becoming a writer, he became the true modern hero, effecting change not only in his own circumstances but in literature and society as well. London's character, love life, writings and personal philosophy are elucidated through interviews with leading scholars, his own photographs, literary works, and vintage film clips. From the Klondike to The Far East to the South Seas, his adventures, romances and political views made headlines worldwide.
