The Northwestern story originated from the pen of Jack London and his "The League of Old Men" included in this volume is a fitting introduction to these rigorous action tales, in which the veneer of civilization is stripped away and individuals must live or die by their cunning, instinct and sometimes ruthlessness. Most of these stories were originally published in magazines and were heavily edited to meet space and style concerns. In this volume they are each restored to their original form from the author. The stories take place in Northwestern Canada, the Yukon Territory, the Klondike River Valley, Alaska, and other wilderness places. 145 pages. 9 x 6 inches. 1999, University of Nebraska Press, USA
