JackLondon-AP-1916Jack London's 1903 The Call of the Wild was a sensation — it sold one million copies and made London the most popular American writer of his generation. He's shown above in 1916, shortly before his death at age 40.

Commentator Rex Buchanan says he recently read one - a biography of Jack london by Earle Labor. As Rex tells us, Labor's book on London includes a surprising connection to Kansas.
