  1. A Daughter of the Snows — New York: J. B. Lippincott Co., October 1902.

    This first novel is a plodding work but important in the development of the still-maturing writer. According to Irving Stone, McClure's backed the book, sending the author $125 a month while he was at work on it; but upon its completion, decided against publishing it and sold the novel to Lippincott's for an advance against royalties of $750. (Sailor on Horseback, pp. 148, 152.) Stone says the book exemplifies London's two main weaknesses as a writer: ". . . his conception of the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race; and his inability to transcribe to a flesh-and-blood reality on the printed page any woman above the working class." (Sailor on Horseback, p. 150.)
