One of the pioneers of 20th century American literature, Jack London specialized in tales of adventure inspired by his own experiences. London was born in San Francisco in 1876. At 14, he quit school and became an "oyster pirate," robbing oyster beds to sell his booty to the bars and restaurants in Oakland. Later, he turned on his pirate associates and joined the local Fish Patrol, resulting in some hair-raising waterfront battles.

Jack London published his first two novels, "The Cruise of the Dazzler" and "A Daughter of the Snows" in 1902. A year later, at the age of 27, he achieved commercial success with his most famous novel, "The Call of the Wild". Love of Life and Other Stories" (1907).

However, he had suffered numerous health issues later in life, and the official cause of death was noted as kidney disease.

1. Gawd!" she cried out. "O Gawd!" She flung wild glances, like those of an entrapped animal, up and down the big whitewashed room that panted with heat and that was thickly humid with the steam that sizzled from the damp cloth under the irons of the many ironers. From the girls and women near her, all swinging irons steadily but at high pace, came quick glances, and labor efficiency. suffered to the extent of a score of suspended or inadequate movements. The elderly woman's cry had caused a tremor of money-loss to pass among the piece-work ironers of fancy starch.

The Valley of the Moon carries on the American literary tradition advocating a life style based on a closeness to the soil, a rejection of urban values and problems, and an appreciation for the pleasures of "the road." This is a proletarian novel portraying the point of view of the working class.

The story line may be dated but the ideals and trials of the characters still ring true today. Humans have suffered and then won out. Humans have seen racial and ethnic troubles but have found ways to cooperate and respect each other. And finally, humans have searched for their own piece of perfection and sometimes they find it. Beautiful vocabulary and description in this book.

While it is not one of London's best novels, I have found it fascinating to read his take on what was happening to the working class in the US in the period just before we entered WWI. The debates over whether the unions were ultimately going to help improve wages and the real concerns about the increasing wealth of the business tycoons of the day at a time when laborers wages were being undercut by influx of immigration. -- All before the "triumphs" of the Progressive Era and the New Deal legislation that gave unions some government backing.

Echoes of today.

This story is long in the writing and offers some surprises about Jack London.
Never knew he could write a story from a woman's perspective and offer it
with so much environmental history of the Oakland area and virtually all parts
south to Carmel-by-the-Sea & Big Sur as well as north well beyond Ft. Bragg.
And the ending is very satisfying after such a long and inquistive journey. This
story is N-O-T in three of my collection of Jack London short & long stories.
Perhaps because it is not quite his normal rustic type narrative, but very much
true to the times around 1913 and thereafter.

Accustomed to reading the raw adventure stories of Jack.London, this one surprised me..London.had a tender side. The book also gives an honest account of life for the ordinary person.in the early 20th century. A good read.

The first half of the book was fascinating, gritty, and painted a picture of labor strife so famous in San Francisco and Oakland. The second half slowly became a tourism guide of the California and Oregon coastal ranges, with unbelievable chance encounters with earlier characters in the novel. It got far fetched and too sweetly romantic. But I didn't regret the read, because London paints pictures with his words. It was perhaps more interesting to me than it might be to others, since I live in San Francisco and know all of the locations London covers in the story.

The story is a moving story read it before . But this book was missing half of the book , like 200 pages of the end part of the story was never put into the book.

The Valley of the Moon is a bit different than most of Jack London's novels. I was expecting something different, and I was not disappointed. I spent about half the book trying to figure out how Saxon and Billy would actually make it to the moon. I was expecting something along the lines of The Scarlet Plague, that is science fiction, but got something entirely different. For my taste it was a bit disappointing, still it was a pretty good read but not quite as good as his other better known works.
Fascinating to see California through London's eyes. The class and cultural evolutions were also fascinating. A great read for wine country enthusiasts.
