A revelatory look at the life of the great American author—and how it shaped his most beloved works Jack London was born a working class, fatherless Californian in 1876. In his youth, he was a boundlessly energetic adventurer on the bustling West Coast—an oyster pirate, a hobo, a sailor, and a prospector by turns. He spent his brief life rapidly accumulating the experiences that would inform his acclaimed bestselling books The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea-Wolf. The bare outlines of his story suggest a classic rags-to-riches tale, but London the man was plagued by contradictions. He chronicled nature at its most savage, but wept helplessly at the deaths of his favorite animals. At his peak the highest paid writer in the United States, he was nevertheless forced to work under constant pressure for money. An irrepressibly optimistic crusader for social justice and a lover of humanity, he was also subject to spells of bitter invective, especially as his health declined. Branded by shortsighted critics as little more than a hack who produced a couple of memorable dog stories, he left behind a voluminous literary legacy, much of it ripe for rediscovery. In Jack London: An American Life, the noted Jack London scholar Earle Labor explores the brilliant and complicated novelist lost behind the myth—at once a hard-living globe-trotter and a man alive with ideas, whose passion for seeking new worlds to explore never waned until the day he died. Returning London to his proper place in the American pantheon, Labor resurrects a major American novelist in his full fire and glory.

"This book may give you the best opportunity of deciding the truth about me and the ministry I hold so dear." -- Oral Roberts "Among several biographies of Oral Roberts, the most recent, most accurate, and best documented is Oral Roberts: An American Life, an objective, impressive study... " -- New York Review of Books "Oral Roberts: An American Life is more than the story of a well-known evangelist and educator. It is the story of a part of the American religious life that not many Americans know or understand.... Dr. Harrell has researched thoroughly and written superbly." -- Billy Graham "... a first-rate biography, one which should give pause to Roberts' supporters and critics alike.... Roberts' first scholarly biographer has done a beautiful job." -- Allen Boyer, Newsday

Jimmy Gentry was one of nine children who grew up in a working-class Williamson county family during the Depression. Franklin, Tennessee was a small, intimate community surrounded by fields and woods, and by unspoiled streams during the days of his boyhood. After the death of his father, he became an expert hunter, trapper, and fisherman in order to provide for his struggling family. Jimmy Gentry was a noted high school athlete, and at the age of 18 he went to war to help defend his nation. He was awarded two Bronze Stars for his actions during the invasion of Germany, and he was among the first Allied troops to enter Dachau, the infamous Nazi death camp. He returned to Franklin and became one of Williamson County's most widely-known citizens, serving as a teacher and a coach for over half a century. An American Life chronicles a time that has all but disappeared--both in Franklin and in small-town America. It gives one soldier's account of surviving war and encountering horror, and tells what became of Williamson County over the years that followed the return of that soldier. An American Life is a book about Jimmy Gentry, about Franklin, and about America. Jimmy Gentry lives three miles west of Franklin, Tennessee along with his wife Rebecca, their three children, and their five grandchildren, on their farm Pleasant View. He operates his summer camp, draws, paints, and is a continuing presence in the lives of his many friends and admirers.
