Recently, I've been getting into Jack London's writing. Almost finished re-reading John Barleycorn. Besides The Call of the Wild, what are some good Jack London reads? Or even other authors of the same style. I'm really enjoying the whole mid to late 19th Century western themes. London really makes California, Oakland and San Francisco in particular, a real rough-and-tumble land during these times. That and I guess all that history and stuff kind of gives me a boner.

As a kid I loved White Fang. They made a movie adaptation in the early 90s that I also enjoyed, but I have no idea if it's held up or not as I haven't seen it in over twenty years.

I just can't make up my mind to start reading Jack London, I am very worried that I will be bored reading it. one of his friends praised him, others say that it is not interesting. although I recently read an essay https://artscolumbia.org/essays/graffiti-art-vandalism-43288/ my friend at the work of Jack London and they impressed me, can read sometime.
