Abstract and Keywords

To appreciate the reality of London’s rise, this discussion will focus upon the influence of many other individuals in shaping and reinforcing his beliefs and commitment to artistry. What one discovers is a man curious for knowledge, open to the ideas of people of varying life conditions. In addition, the “cradling,” the support and encouragement of women is evident from childhood onward. Though this theme can apply to his endeavors in ranching and in socialist activity, here the focus is specifically on his writing career, its emergence, and influential people. What emerges is a man who had many mentors, but who mentored in return and assisted the creativity of his friends.

Keywords: Mentors, family, authorship, creativity, influences
