Burning Daylight begins as many of London's finest works begin: with the depiction of a man blessed with physical prowess and keen perception who takes on the natural forces of the 19th-century Yukon.

Supreme gold miner, risk-all gambler, and unbeatable fighter, Burning Daylight is his name. Daylight moves from the Yukon to San Francisco, and plays "the bigger game of finance and wealth", until he is reminded of something he lost, something pure and good. And with this discovery, London turns his standard format into the finest love story he ever crafted and Burning Daylight becomes much more than a simple adventure.

Favorite Jack London book

i enjoyed the narrator, story, theme, and resolution. I feel that this was Jack London's dream for himself.

Production value poor

This was a great book with an adventurous transporting story. Burning Daylight a compelling character from the mind of Jack London. But..... I was very crestfallen by the poor quality of the recording. So much so that I stopped listening two or three times abjured by the shrill background noise. The production was cheaply and poorly performed. This could have been a life changing book for a new reader, or a new-to-London fan. Overall if your a JL fan and prefer books on tape through your Audible app this is a great pick. Just bear in mind that the production value is low but the story is well worth the sacrifice.
