Though less famous than some of his other works, particularly The Call of the Wild and White Fang, Smoke Bellew is arguably the best of London's books, and is certainly worth a read by any lover of his writing, or indeed even anyone interested in a fine and engrossing adventure. The tale of a journalist who heads to the Klondike on a reporting expedition, but chooses to stay for the good, clean, hard living, Smoke Bellew is a masterpiece of Klondike literature, full of engrossing characters, exciting dogsled races, mysterious hidden gold mines, daring rescues, and incredible hardship met with bravery and aplomb. Well-written and richly illustrated, Smoke Bellew is a joyful read for all ages. 183 pp., English. Purchase in Print | PDF (free) | HTML (free).
