The Faith of Men was Jack London's fourth collection of short stories, first published in 1904. It is probably the best collection he published during his lifetime, and certainly the best of his Klondike stories. In these eight superb tales of the North, London augments age-old traditions of storytelling with innovative plots, unique characters, and authentic local color. Reading this book is like eavesdropping on the tales traded by fur trappers, prospectors, and sled-dog mushers over a pot of whiskey-tainted coffee at a long-forgotten arctic trading post. Though all the stories take place in or around the Yukon, they vary widely in tone.
