Jack London (1876-1916), was an American author and a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction. He was one of the first Americans to make a lucrative career exclusively from writing. London was self-educated. He taught himself in the public library, mainly just by reading books. In 1898, he began struggling seriously to break into print, a struggle memorably described in his novel, Martin Eden (1909). Jack London was fortunate in the timing of his writing career. He started just as new printing technologies enabled lower-cost production of magazines. This resulted in a boom in popular magazines aimed at a wide public, and a strong market for short fiction. In 1900, he made $2,500 in writing, the equivalent of about $75,000 today. His career was well under way. Among his famous works are: Children of the Frost (1902), The Call of the Wild (1903), The Sea Wolf (1904), The Game (1905), White Fang (1906), The Road (1907), Before Adam (1907), Adventure (1911), and The Scarlet Plague (1912).

Elam Harnish, "Burning Daylight" - a man's man, a brute with great foresight and intuition making the hard-living in Alaska and the Northwest Canadian territories as a gold panner tells his tale.

Many of `Daylight's' exploits are noted by his companions and townsfolk. These deeds range from high-stake poker to record time dog sledding mail runs to building a town practically by himself after having done quite well gold prospecting.

After Daylight pretty much accomplishes all he can in Alaska he decides to try his luck in California in the business game. Here he is also quite successful with a few mishaps where people thought he could be easily duped.

Daylight gradually slides into complacency about all things except his business. He soon meets a woman and becomes smitten, but she wants nothing to do with him because she sees he's married already - to his work and he's no longer the tough, hard Alaskan man that many years ago had moved to California.

Daylight spends most of the rest of the story attempting to woo this young woman. He succeeds only after giving up everything else.

A once hard man turns soft because and for love. Not my preferential reading but at least the first three-quarters of the story was worth reading. I give it four for it's literary quality, overall.
Burning Daylight was intelligent and wise. Seeing all the gold and wealth are worth nothing if you aren't happy.
We work day in and day out searching for gold and we end up in situations that burn that gold up in an instant.
But are we truly happy? This is a sick society/we are nothing but slaves working to buy that new fangled cell phone that
we can ask our other when at the store "there's a can of peas here for $0.75 and another brand at $0.79. Which one should I buy?" That's insane. For a test of our loyality "they" have all us sheep heading in one direction all at the same time in the morning and evening. What a game and we are all set up to lose.
I did enjoy the storyline.. The descriptive passages were rather tedious, but I had to constantly remind myself that the book was published in the early 1900's
I do love Jack London's books and stories.....White Fang and The Call Of The Wild. I've reread them over and over. So I'll probably reread Burning Daylight.
Highly recommended.
I had to read a Jack London book for my book club this month. I wasn't really looking forward to it. I searched for a short book that looked interesting. I loved this book and couldn't put it down. I am sorry I finished it and will be looking for another Jack London book to read.
Print is way too small to comfortably read!
Loved Jack London's style of writing. Made you feel like you were there. I had wanted to read this for a long time. I was not disappointed, other than the feeling that I wish I had read this sooner. I've been an outdoorsman and so this really communicated to my inner being.
Global Progression
One of the greatest books I've ever read.London wrote deeply, but simply about life in a way a 20 year old, back in 1973, could understand.I Stumbled into a paperback edition, back then, with 15 cents written on the cover as what was charged for the book. Sadly, it's been lost along the way, but now I have a Kindle copy!!!
Burning Daylight is , basically, a tale of a "niechean like superman" in "turn of the century" garb. An epic story and the best "love story" I've ever read. If you like this, then head on over to "Martin Eden" for the best Tragedy ever written
Want to read one of the best portrayals of the Yukon (from a reader's standpoint)?

This is it. Jack London is writing well at this point in his life.
