Summary

In Jack London's first novel, he tells the story of Frona Welse, a strong and interesting heroine, «a Stanford graduate and physical Valkyrie,» who heads to the Yukon gold fields after creating a stir in her hometown by being strong and forthright and by befriending the town's prostitute. In the course of her adventures, she finds herself at the distaff point of a love triangle. This novel contains very overt racial and gender stereotypes and as such reflects the attitudes growing in society at the time it was written. It is the practice at Librivox to record works as they stand, without judgment. — Summary by Don W. Jenkins
