“Smoke Bellew” is a 1912 novel by Jack London. The story revolves around Christopher Bellew, a successful journalist in San Francisco who one day decides to swapping his monotonous and meaningless life for an entirely different one in nature. From clean-shaven pen-pusher to bearded mountain man, he adopts the name “Smoke” and learns to live in the wilds of the frontier. John Griffith London (1876 – 1916), commonly known as Jack London, was an American journalist, social activist, and novelist. He was an early pioneer of commercial magazine fiction, becoming one of the first globally-famous celebrity writers who were able to earn a large amount of money from their writing. Other notable works by this author include: “The Cruise of the Dazzler” (1902), “The Kempton-Wace Letters” (1903), and “The Call of the Wild” (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
