Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very professional documentary Although quite short, this documentary does a great job at explaining how and why Jack London wrote what he wrote. I enjoyed the different points of view from all the professors and London's descendants, and especially the original photographs and clips. I highly recommend this to appreciate London's work even more!
