Charmian Kittredge was born in Southern California and educated at home, developing excellent secretarial skills. A free spirit and devoted traveller, she married Jack London in 1905. The two shared an adventurous life of travel until London's death in 1916. Charmian wrote fiction, travel books, and biography, including the two-volume Book of Jack London. She was an intriguing personality in her own light, and a devoted promoter of Jack London's works.
