An action-filled story of the Yukon Territory in 1893, the surging novel of the men who gambled their lives and opened the vast Canadian North in their lust for gold, Burning Daylight was Jack London's best selling book during his lifetime. It was filmed as a First National movie starring Milton Sills with Doris Kenyon. Jack London (1876-1916), an American novelist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school. London draws heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent time in the Klondike during the Gold Rush and at various times was an oyster pirate, a seaman, a sealer, and a hobo. His first work was published in 1898. From there he went on to write such American classics as Call of the Wild, Sea Wolf, and White Fang.
