For all the love the Gold Rush era gets from the Americana set, there aren't too many faces that can be put to the name—just anonymous beards and dusty overalls—but Jack London was there, in the thick of it.

Jack London's Journalism:The Story of an Eyewitness

Lynne F's insight:

This is what Jack London wrote when he was in San Francisco during the earthquake and subsequent fire of 1906. His journalism is definitely downplayed (as is the case with a lot of famous author/journalists) and this site actually has a couple of the stories he wrote as a reporter--worth checking into if you're interested in that sort of thing.

East London 1903, from 'The People of the Abyss' by Jack London

East London 1903, from 'The People of the Abyss' by Jack London | Jack London and Co. | Scoop.it

'BUT YOU can't do it, you know,' friends said, to whom I applied for assistance in the matter of sinking myself down into the East End of London. 'You had better see the police for a guide,' they added, on second thought, painfully endeavoring to adjust themselves to the psychological processes of a madman who had come to them with better credentials than brains.

 

'But I don't want to see the police,' I protested. 'What I wish to do, is to go down into the East End and see things for myself. I wish to know how those people are living there, and why they are living there, and what they are living for. In short, I am going to live there myself.'

 

'You don't want to live down there!' everybody said, with disapprobation writ large

upon their faces. 'Why, it is said there places where a man's life isn't worth tu'pence.'

Lynne F's insight:

A graphic adaptation of what is probably the most famous quote attributed to Jack London, though academics and fans have speculated that it is not wholly accurate (the quote, not the comic). Still, London probably said something to that effect...and this comic is a really inventive way to use his words.
