376,  pp. Red cloth, gilt titles. Jacket art by T.F. Woolrich ('). The first novel by the author best known for The Call of the Wild and White Fang. "Set in the Yukon, it tells the story of Frona Welse, 'a Stanford graduate and physical Valkyrie' who takes to the trail after upsetting her wealthy father's community by her forthright manner and befriending the town's prostitute. She is also torn between love for two suitors: Gregory St Vincent, a local man who turns out to be cowardly and treacherous; and Vance Corliss, a Yale-trained mining engineer. The novel is noteworthy for its strong and self-reliant heroine, one of many who would people his fiction. Her name echoes that of his mother, Flora Wellman, though her inspiration has also been said to include London's friend Anna Strunsky. Modern commentators have criticized the novel for its approval of the main character's view that Anglo-Saxons are racially superior."
