This is an original 1911 10 page article titled, "The Strength of the Strong," by Jack London. London is most known for his works "White Fang," "To Build a Fire," and "Call of the Wild." The article features the story of Long-Beard. The story begins, "Old Long-Beard paused in his narrative, licked his greasy fingers and wiped them on his naked sides where his one piece of ragged bearskin failed to cover him. Crouched around him, on their hams, were three young men, his grandsons, Deer-Runner, Yellow-Head and Afraid-of-the-Dark." Please see additional images and note that the 10 pages are printed on 5 pages, front and back.
