Jack London's Star-Rover
What an amazing read! This is apparently one of London's lesser-known works. I would likely never have heard of it if it weren't for the good docent at Jack London SHP.
London tells the story of Darrel Standing, a man who learned through his incarceration and torture at San Quentin Prison that it is the human spirit that endures when the flesh fades away. London's beautiful prose and eclectic knowledge turn an otherwise nightmarish tale into something beautiful.
