“I wouldn’t mind if you laid my ashes on the knoll where the Greenlaw children are buried. And roll over me a red boulder from the ruins of the Big House.”  Jack London

 

POEM BY GEORGE STERLING

Oh, was there ever face of all the dead

In which too late the living could not read

A mute appeal for all the love unsaid—

A mute reproach for careless word and deed?

And now, dear friend of friends, we look on thine,

To whom we could not give a last farewell—

On whom without a whisper or a sign,

The deep unfathomable Darkness fell.

On! Gone beyond us, who shall say how far?

Gone swiftly to the dim Eternity,

Leaving us silence, or the words that are

To sorrow as the foam is to the sea.

Unfearing heart, whose patience was so long!

Unresting mind, so hungry for the truth!

Now has thou rest, gentle one and strong,

Dead like a lordly lion in its youth.

Farewell! Although thou know not, there alone,

Farewell! Although thou hear not in our cry

The love we would have given had we known, Ah! And a soul like thine how shall it die.

Doc leads a  Tour of the Wolf House Ruins

Jack London was the most popular American author of his day – adventurer, romantic, realist, revolutionary, sportsman, socialist, dreamer…combative, contrary, contradictory, charismatic, and courageous – Jack London’s legacy lives here amidst the mystical magic of Valley of the Moon and the silent stones of the burned out Wolf House that was to stand for a thousand years.

Walk down the old ranch road to the house that Jack built and learn about the life that Jack London lived with his extraordinary “mate-woman”, Charmian and relive the tragic and dramatic tale of the Wolf House fire.
