Hey guys i really need your help, I'm doing a research paper for my american lit class about jack london. basically i need to tell how his life and his expiriences has been in corporated into his works and stories. I'm looking for quotes from Law Of Life, Open Boat, Or iron heel (2 of the 3) showing his political views and/or nature versus civilization. Also a Summary of the listed stories.

If any of you could help out with any part of this as soon as you could that would be amazingly appreciated.

Thanks

He made more money as an oyster pirate than he made as an author. He was poisoned. He was born on January 12th, wrote call of the wild...about all I can remember.

edit-If cash comes with fame, then come fame, if not, then come cash-- or something along those lines was a quote by him. Another was "I would rather be ashes than dust..."(can't remember the rest)

I read 2 of his books, and it was mostly about out door experiences/ and adventures. I cant remember any of his quotes i think google would be a better help. Hes an excellent story writer by the way.
