Burning Daylight

by London, Jack

Partially based upon the life of Oakland entrepreneur "Borax" Smith, Burning Daylight was Jack London's best selling book during his lifetime. The novel is set in the Yukon Territory in 1893, telling the story of an adventurer, nicknamed “Burning Daylight,” who went to Alaska and laid the foundations of his fortune before the gold hunters arrived. Burning Daylight was adapted for American films in 1914, 1920, 1928, and 2010.

First Edition Identification and Notes
