- Full Description
From the amazing adventure novelist, author of White Fang and The Call of the Wild, Jack London’s renowned short story “To Build a Fire” is here in a new and evocative form from master artist Christophe Chabouté, a powerfully illustrated graphic novel. It is a gripping story of man versus nature in the harsh and unforgiving Yukon.
