This paper discusses how in his stories "At The Rainbow's End", and "The White Silence", Jack London shows the awe-inspiring beauty of the frozen wilderness that he himself had so briefly visited. It looks at how he describes to us the vast, remote iciness that man dared to enter, and the disastrous results when nature proves in no uncertain terms that it will triumph over Man in his fight for survival.

From the Paper:

"In his story "At The Rainbow's End", Jack continues relating his fascination with Nature and the lessons he learned in the frozen North. He tells a tale of Montana Kid, who had tired of Idaho and civilization and made a run for the new frontier. "True, the new territory was mostly barren; but its several hundred thousand square miles of frigidity at least gave breathing space to those who else would have suffocated at home" ("At The Rainbow's End"). Montana Kid was a hustler and gets into several scrapes after stealing from other men's camps. But he eventually ran out of luck, and misfortune became his companion. He spent time alone in the wilderness, and then he made a trip to Dawson and exchanged news of local events with the townsfolk. The discussion was mainly about how quickly men were lost in a multitude of disasters. "
