Jack London was the most popular and highest paid American author of his day; the first American writer to earn a million dollars. Of the 50 books and hundreds of essays authored by Jack London, Call of the Wild, White Fang, and others have been translated into over 70 languages. London is also famous for his adventures, world travels, as an innovator, social activist, artist, philosopher and for his pioneering farming experiments with sustainable agriculture as early as 1906.
