This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – Jack London. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
John Griffith London was born in San Francisco of an unmarried mother of wealthy background, Flora Wellman. His father may have been William Chaney, a journalist, lawyer, and major figure in the development of American astrology. His father was never part of his life. Because Flora was ill, Jack was raised through infancy by an ex-slave, Virginia Prentiss, who would remain a major maternal figure while the boy grew up.
Though the family was working class, it was not so impoverished as London's later accounts claimed.Often troubled by physical ailments, during his thirties London developed kidney disease of unknown origin. He died of renal failure on November 22, 1916 on the ranch.
Study of his life and writings provides a case through which to examine the contradictions in the American character, along with key movements and ideas prominent during the Progressive era.
His novels, including The Call of the Wild, White Fang and Martin Eden, placed London among the most popular American authors of his time.
The presentation covers the following:
The Call of the Wild
Love of Agriculture
Illness & Death
