Content: &quot;The Road&quot; is London's account of London's experiences as a hobo in the 1890s, during the worst economic depression the United States had experienced up to that time. &quot;The Cruise of the Snark&quot; chronicles London's sailing adventure in 1907 across the south Pacific in his ketch the Snark. Accompanying London on this voyage was his wife Charmian London and a small crew. &quot;John Barleycorn&quot; is an autobiographical account of Jack London dealing with his enjoyment of drinking and struggles with alcoholism. &quot;The People of the Abyss&quot; describes London's experiences about life in the East End of London in 1902.
