Editorial Reviews

Jack London wastes no time setting the tone for The God of His Fathers, his collection of rugged short stories set in the Klondike: "On every hand stretched the forest primeval, - the home of noisy comedy and silent tragedy." Iron-willed women, grizzled gamblers, and weather worn tribes of Alaskan Indians populate these stories, which capture the icy essence of the Northern frontier, harsh and seemingly boundless. In his husky dirge, performer John Chatty is forceful and earnest, capturing the driving toughness that underscores London’s entwinement of nature and man - spirit and civilization.

great stories, poor audio editing.

Jack London is amazing. That's hardly news, and this collection is no exception. Great performance by the reader as well. My only beef is that there is no space between stories, no pause in the audio playback to let you know that one story ended and another began, which is a little confounding, but not so much that I didn't finish the book. I might have returned this book though if it were a lesser author.
