The Strength of the Strong
    
Old Long-Beard is an early caveman who wears bearskin and eats with his hands. His life might seem simple, but the truth is something different – his society was once complex and advanced. One day he decides to tell his grandsons the story behind their tribe; how their society evolved step by step, and how it in the end led to their destruction...

‘The Strength of the Strong’ is one of the intriguing short stories in Jack London’s short story collection which carries the same name. The collection includes seven short stories, some of which are purely political. Jack London (1876–1916) was an American writer and social activist. He grew up in the working class, but became a worldwide celebrity and one of the highest paid authors of his time. He wrote several novels, which are considered classics today, among these 'Call of the Wild', 'Sea Wolf' and 'White Fang'.
