by Jack London, 1920, G & D, some spotting on cover otherwise good condition. Burning Daylight was London's best selling book during his lifetime. The book begins on the Klondike, as the hero-nicknamed Burning Daylight-becomes the most successful entrepreneur during the Alaskan Gold Rush. Having achieved fame and fortune, he heads to the States, he's cheated out of his fortune by the crooks of Wall Street. He too becomes a scoundrel when it comes to doing business. His travels take him to California where he sees potential in the town of Oakland. He buys property, sets up utilities and public transportation systems through overbearing and shady tactics. He becomes self-indulgent with drink and food. And then, for the first time, he falls in love. The story ends with the moral of how a good woman can turn a bad man around. Adventure, dirty business deals and love wrapped into one good story.
