In A Far Country
Jack London's Tales of the WestBook - 1987
In a Far Country's seventeen tales and essays not only trace the vastness of the West, but they also form, with the introduction and notes supplied by the editor, a biography of on of America's supreme literary artists. The stories cover London's entire writing life -- from 1899 and the title story, to the posthumously published gem, Like Argus of the Ancient Times.
Of special interest is London's re-creation -- uncannily accurate -- of one of the bloodiest and most shameful episodes of Utah territorial history, the massacre at Mountain Meadows in 1857.
