)-- The House of Happy Walls Museum in Jack London State Historic Park in Glen Ellen, California re-opened on November 10 after an extensive renovation. As part of that renovation, an expanded gift store now carries SeaWolf Press special Museum Editions of all 50 of Jack London’s books as well as the four books written by his wife, Charmian London. The text and illustrations in these versions are taken from the original first editions, and the covers are replicas of the first edition covers.
Jack London’s Life
Jack London lived a life of extremes while becoming the best known author in the world. Raised in a working class family in Oakland, California, he was primarily self-taught. His adventurous life provided material for his stories, articles, and books. Known for his realistic writing, his life experiences are revealed in every book. He spent time as a teenage oyster pirate on San Francisco Bay, sailed on a sealing schooner, train-hopped the country as a hobo, scrambled for gold in the Klondike, sailed the Pacific, and was heavily involved in socialism. His dream house in Glen Ellen burned to the ground shortly before it was to be occupied. A well-known Socialist, London’s death was observed by a cease-fire for a day during the Russian Revolution.
