Oakland City Council Considering A’s “Howard Terminal or Bust” Offer

"Vote whether to approve the A's proposal to build a new baseball stadium at Howard Terminal. They say Their waterfront proposal, which includes housing, a performance space and hotels will revitalize West Oakland, an area of the city that has historically suffered from gentrification and displacement by big infrastructure projects like bark. Freeways in the post office down there. Opponents say it will cost jobs at the port and argued that the stadium should be built to the Coliseum, where ample transportation infrastructure already exists. Ratcheting up the tension as the A's ultimatum that if they can't build on the waterfront, they will move away entirely, leaving Oakland without a major league sports team following the loss of the city's other teams. We'll hear about the plan at what it means for Oakland and Bay Area sports fans. First I want to bring Nina Thorsen, producer at KQED and the California report onto the show to give us a reset. Welcome to the show. Nina Hey, Alexis. Good to talk to you. So first, let's let's talk about the specific area where it is. I want to give listeners like a sort of mental map. Where exactly is Howard Terminal? So if you've ever taken a fairy and gotten off at the open side, it's immediately north of where the ferry terminal is right now and then in between Howard Terminal and, um, the rest of the port of Oakland. That's where Schnitzer Steel the steel factory is. So it's right on the water, and, um, right adjacent to the ferry terminal. And I think that's one of the things that makes this such a complicated location is on the one side. You've got the port and on the other side you've got Jack London is right right in between there. Sure, And I mean, I think this is the challenge inherent to anybody who's going to build. Any kind of new facility in an established city is you want to be close to things that are already there and places where people want to go, But that means you're going to be next to some people, and there's just a lot of complications involved for sure. Give us a quick recap

Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff.

Bathsheba Demuth: Environmental Historian

"This episode of is on Conservation I spoke with author and environmental historian Bethsheba. Demuth Demuth is an assistant professor at Brown University who specializes in the intersection between humans. Ecosystems ideas in history the work that I do as an environmental historian is broadly focused on the North American and Russian Arctic and particularly the relationships between people and animals and people in Ecosystems. More broadly over the past two hundred years or so. We talked over. Skype demuth was in fairbanks as the professor was performing research for her new book. Her first book is titled Floating Coast and Environmental History of the Bering Straits. Npr called it. A quote deeply studied deeply felt book that lays out a devastating complex history of change notes. What faces us now and dares us to imagine better in quote as we proceed and get into this interview. I will note that I spoke with Professor Demuth while she was at the university library so it can be a little loud in the background at times. It's a busy place. I can promise you however that this will be one of the most compelling and interesting accounts of the history of whaling that you had ever you look so cold yes. It's a little chilly up here. What's the what's the weather like right? Now it's actually a pretty Balmy day today. It's about twenty degrees. It was about fifty degrees colder here last week. You've you've draw the line pretty much anything around ten. Just can't do it for me of all the things that makes this whole conversation. That much more interesting demuth was actually drawn to the Arctic in her young adult life and even lived in the Yukon for two years. And yes doing all the things that you're imagining right now tracking bears hunting. Caribou FISHING SALMON. And yes even. Husky Mushin Dog sledding and no. I'm not making that up. She's that for real your your first journeys out there. If I understand right was your running dog sled yes so when I was eighteen I decided to take a gap year as we. Now call them although they weren't really called then And went to a little community north of the Arctic Circle in the Yukon territory to be a dog handler which is basically an apprentice to somebody who has a dog team and I knew nothing about sled dogs. When I moved up there I was eighteen so I thought I knew something about things but I really didn't. And that was my first introduction to the Arctic. Okay and how long you said you do that for two years. Yes do you. Do you still remember how to do it? I mean I. It's kind of like riding a bicycle except in this particular case. You're working with dogs so you can remember how to do the physical pieces of it but you also need to have a relationship with animals. You're working with so. I'm sure that if I had a team and I spent a lot of time with them would would all come back because I would be making that relationship with dogs but I'd like a bicycle. You can't just grab one and go right right. Yeah that makes sense You don't have to get to know your bike. I right I probably ended up working appear because my dad read me too much Jack London when I was a kid. So there's definitely a literary connection in there now. I could do a really poor job of basically giving it a synopsis of the Book. Or I'm sure it would be much more articulate coming from you Tell us a little bit more about the Soviet whaling And more specifically what you found so fascinating a about that topic. Yes the book that I published. Just this past fall called floating coast looks at basically the the past two hundred years or so along the Bering Strait both the Russian Arctic and in the US Arctic. It's a it's a two country history but because it's an environmental history in some ways it's a history of no country because it's looking at processes an an animals that don't really matched onto nation state borders and the the the project is kind book ended no Pun intended by could have two episodes of large scale whaling the first one being in the nineteenth century for market whalers capitalist wailers most of them coming from New England in fact some of them from where I now live in Providence. Who were coming up to kill bowhead. Whales for oil for lamp oil mostly and then the book closes with a couple of chapters about Soviet whaling in the twentieth century. Which in many ways is just the socialist analog to the to the capitalist wailing in that it is Quite excessive it kills whales far outside their capacity to to reproduce. And keep keep up with the demand and those kind of frames of the book in some ways. Show the things that I found really interesting about this part of the world as a historian. Who's interested in the ways that people's ideas influence the environments? They live in and vice versa. Which is that. It's a it's a place that has a very similar ecology on both sides of the Bering Strait. If you drop down on the peninsula or the seward Peninsula Chukchi Peninsulas in Russia and the seward Peninsula's in Alaska. He can't really tell one from the other right. And let's you know the place extremely well. Because the the flora and the fauna in geology are really comparable but of course in the twentieth century. It gets split by these two big economic ideologies that imagine each other in opposition. Which is you know. Capitalism and socialism. So it's kind of a natural experiment to see how these two ways of managing environments in some sense that the Soviet Union the United States brought with them interact with Arctic species and in the case of Wales they do it very similarly which is more or less trying to kill everywhere they possibly can ya. It's like it's kind of shocking especially when you talk about like as a concern of how many whales are being impacted or what that's doing to the ecosystem comes up that the answer kind of always came back to will. Don't worry. Technology will save us from. That will deliver a positive outcome. Okay can you elaborate on that? Yes this was one of the really interesting commonalities I found between two groups of whalers who were operating hundred years apart from each other or more and in two extremely different cultural and economic contexts is at the end of nineteenth century moby. Dick STYLE TALL SHIP. Whalers call me. Ishmael an ordinary seaman before the mast on the good ship check. What found out a man on Christmas Day of the year? Eighteen forty four on a thousand days. Voight very aware that when they entered a new population of Wales and a piece of the ocean that they hadn't been hunting in before that they would they called. Wailing it out or fishing it out that they would kill off an enormous number of the animals that were that were available locally and that they were doing this and getting further and further from home. So they're aware and using the word extinction by the end of the nineteenth century but at the same time as they're talking about extinction they're basically saying well if we put in place some technological Improvements if our ships get faster. If we're more able to navigate around the sea ice will be able to still catch these whales and there was this kind of belief that because Wales were really intelligent. And all of the whalers nudists and talk about this in detail that there were more whales. They were just shy or had gotten smart and were hiding in new places. So there's actually a couple of lines in Moby Dick Melville talks about you know the whales are just hiding behind the Arctic Sea ice and then after the Second World War the Soviet Union sort of follows the same pattern in that they have very sophisticated marine biology by that point in many ways the the research that so the marine biologist or doing is ahead of what's happening in the United States particularly when it comes to studying ways that whales are social animals and able to communicate vocally with each other They're they're way ahead of what's happening in English. Speaking Countries but at the same time as an aware that that the populations of wheels are dropping but at the same time. They're convinced that as long as they just kind of keep putting more technology online. They're going to be able to keep killing

"Highly anticipated Harrison Ford movie an adaptation of Jack London's classic call of the wild the dangers for you never know what's coming I came up here because a the around book what do you think well you know this is a classic story it's been filmed lots of times going back to the thirties with Clark Gable and there was one with Charlton Heston to it's it's a great dog story it's still one of the best dog stories ever written a course about this wonderful dog Baku's kidnapped down in California taken up to the Yukon becomes a sled dog and has all sorts of adventures and it is a story that works beautifully on the page it's it's still one of those no that was it everybody should read in school this movie unfortunately into to a CG I extravaganza the dog in the movie is not real it's a computer generated image and it acts against Harrison Ford who is the old man who adopts the dog and the dog in affected tops human saves him from his craving for booze is in the doldrums over a a family tragedy and the problem with the movie is that the dog never looks real nor to any of the other critics were also the critters that are also CG I enhanced the the background you're beautiful the cinematography is wonderful Harrison Ford brings to a grizzled dignity to the role but the fact is you're always distanced from the movie because the animals just do not look real at least eighty percent of the time and the script is kind of sappy to it it it it really the head has slimmed down the story to the bare essentials turning it into a almost Disney kind of movie so while I really wanted to like the call of the wild I couldn't really buy into it simply because of the over use of CG I in none of the versions of the call of the wild this is the nineteen thirties has really been all of that all good all of them have been disappointed in one a disappointing in one way or another this one they spend a lot of money on it but I'm afraid they probably should have just turned it into a purely animated film if they wanted to go that route all right next to a movie that said to be about the man who took down the mafia it's called the trader.

Code is idea of adaptability of true comradeship of imagination. We've talked about his themes of agrarian writing in working with nature. We talked with this idea of love. Love that runs is throughout his stories. What do you think after when you taught seminars on Jack London? What did you hope your students would walk away with some big ideas that would change their life and they would maybe think differently because they read these Jack London stories? I'd say maybe a sense of adventure and other words moving out and seeking or what have you not and by the way it's not just physically but electorally seeking that there's so much out there and debris in join if we'll just look for it and open our minds minds to it and that there's a a world of possibility in terms of relationships that we are maybe overlooking because of the various problems we've got socially now a week ago into what's going on in our currently restrictive society or what avenue but the sense of openness and simply enjoy live while we can.

Yeah Mamie to before the beginning right. Now let's you. We've talked about different things that Jacqueline Jack London hit on during his career. We talked about his northland. Code is idea of adaptability of true comradeship of imagination. We've talked about his themes of agrarian writing in working with nature. We talked with this idea of love. Love that runs is throughout his stories. What do you think after when you taught seminars on Jack London? What did you hope your students would walk away with some big ideas that would change their life and they would maybe think differently because they read these Jack London stories? I'd say maybe a sense of adventure and other words moving out and seeking or what have you not and by the way it's not just physically but electorally seeking that there's so much out there and debris in join if we'll just look for it and open our minds minds to it and that there's a a world of possibility in terms of relationships that we are maybe overlooking because of the various problems we've got socially now a week ago into what's going on in our currently restrictive society or what avenue but the sense of openness and simply enjoy live while we can. There's so much there which Jaguar we're still seeking at the very end. There's so much live has to offer if we just opened our eyes to it and yet experienced I think a sense of excitement sense of shroud of Abra love of our fellow human man's and maybe not just human beings but also the animals because Jag absolutely love the animals as well as people you know specially ores isn't dogs those things I think they may have found Also a general the sense of excitement that they may have been missed in their daily lives or whatever. And how is Jack. London changed your life. I mean you've been a decade. Well I think he's done a lot for man man germs of relationships. It's amazing that they Places I've been and people I've met in the number of people out there who are absolutely taken with Jack London for one reason or another most of what we've been discussing today that that there's a sense of openness there to attend to London that you may not find another authors. There's so many different possibilities the days for eleven. If you just open yourself up fantastic earl. This has been a fantastic conversation.

"And you got this character bail who is a prospector on some place like the ranch down there prospecting for gold and he finds this may go pocket and desecrates the a hillside get the go and the process almost gets killed by a stranger. That's been watched him and Delhi a uncovers the goal and gums up and shoots him fortunately he manages to survive. But you've got if something of the northland time coming down. They're not loving the land just say but desecrating that beautiful place. So there's a message there that Jag is trying to convey that he's getting the same attitude in terms of treatment of nature. It doesn't work in they. Pastoral Garden Our wilderness. The way did up and they frozen northland the but in terms of the spirit camaraderie days and say honesty. I love of Man. And what have you It's it's essentially the same. Incidentally we might mention that London's attitude toward women changed significantly after meeting Charman Sharman from what it was in the early stuff won't talk Mel. Let's let's talk about that right now. So yeah his. He was married twice his first wife they separated and then he met charming. Like tell us about their relationship and how it influenced his writing hand. He married carried bessie matter and for the wrong reasons and has a terrible mistake for everybody and I mean we're still paying the price in terms of the damage to did folks the offspring all that did so San at first neither of them really loved each other. There was a marriage of convenience. She just lost disturb the end. Say Fred Jacobs too. I think some kind of ailment. When he was on approved she have gone? The Philippines have gotten now what buddy was suffering from but They'd been friends for years and he felt well. I need to get married ready to settle down and have a good mother for seven nine. Go Saxon sons or whatever turned out that Bessie Denman love him but he never really loved her. They had two daughters meanwhile meanwhile he is having a kind of fair With Anna Stransky never consummated but in terms of Somebody who could relate to intellectually and personally more closely good with Bessie. He was a party guy he loved it finding love crowds and mud and loved entertain. People and Betsy didn't like that at all so they were just not compatible and finally I guess it was summer of nineteen three or so a felon hallway Jarmin and madly literally madly in love. You read my biography of see some those early love letters just absolutely beside him. Savvy never met a woman quite like that I wish I had it handy. I could describe her. She was the new woman in many ways and she was very feminine but at the same same time she was tough she added twelve or own but she was smart enough. Know How to get along along with them and she was very attractive which does come out. And your picture's Milo shepherd tacked on and there was a great nephew newer very well for many years and had tremendous admiration for. He said he when she was in her sixties she. She could turn men's ad when she walked tender room. So charming was something special and then ask from her that he evolved the idea. Adia the mate woman not just any guy van demolished accents or whatever but a true made in terms of unequal quoted on many In many respects and loved her Ndola Day died and she loved him of course as expanding abandoned tractive. Houdini had an affair with her after his death wanted to marry her the bed. She didn't WanNA marry Houdini. Dany in fact she didn't she didn't WanNA marry anybody. Jack I guess yeah this idea of mate woman they call each other mate. And how how do you see this idea of the mate woman. Does it come up in London's literature and yeah it comes up. It's a a I think. In burning daylight certain in one sense it comes up in they Say Wove with with Bobby Brewster as his made so mom I think maybe the first character in his novels based on on Charman so it certainly there and at some point by the way you mentioned in London's concept of masculinity yeah. I think that's very important. There's there's a section I like to read about that pretty soon but let me mention characters that exemplify amplify masculinity John Thornton of course in the caller while waiting Scott and white Fang And I think even Humphrey van waiting in the sea it's fascinating particularly in the say woebegone humphreys a work in progress. He comes on board the mall. If she's move Wolf Larsen she up ghost as again a neuter assessing and Larsson makes a man out of him Larson's too much for man he's A. There's a section in this say well. For Humphrey Humphry is talking about these guys. They need a little influence. Women narrates their world has is warped in essence so here is Wolf Larsen making a man in a sense given humphry that masculinity but he needs something nells he needs that feminine Tach. And that's where Maud brewster comes in to make him the complete Mahan and then there's a section even in two man on frail. I won't read to you when we get a chance to do that now. Let's do that was talking about that do that all right. I'm back to very early story. The first story published in the overland monthly to the man on trail by the way Malamud mood kid. WHO's the kind of high priest? The Northland Code is another example of true man. Or what have you and in this story. And he's sort of our He's a character. We see the events through whose eyes we see the events on phone areas. The dog soon became person hearken back to the trails of childhood. Has the younger a young stranger stranger eight of the rude fair by a man named Jack Weston Dale. WHO's just come down as a man on trail will join the group incident this Christmas party? That's going on in this story Anderson Christmas party Reid. Malibu kid attended the Studded is phase hour was a long and deciding that it was fair honest and open that he liked it still youthful. The lions had been firmly praised by toil and hardship. She APP though genial in conversation and mild when at rest the blue eyes gave promise. The hard steel glitter take comes when car into action. Especially against odds the Hemi John's Square cut Chan demonstrated rugged pertinacity today and in dominant beltway. Nar though the attributes of the line and were there was there wanting a certain softness us the hint of luminous woman lateness which bespoke the emotional nature so there you got the qualities of both sexes in a sense both accepted qualities. Masculinity feminising in one carrier workgroup without having the kind of proud that you got when Wolf Larsen who dies I think symbolically as well rallies literally in this also. There's a section that Arnold talks about. This is a comment by famous famous portrait artist on again thing describing London. Has I say most accurate name quote Jack. London Um had a poignantly sensitive face. His were the eyes of a dreamer. There's an almost feminine wistfulness wistfulness about him and yet at the same time he gave the feeling of a terrible and unconquerable unconquerable physical force. So I think that bree wells describes London and his idea of masculinity solemnity as well will this idea of needing masculine and feminine energies combined. The sounds like ume the psychologist. Carl Jung and you talk about this this in your biography that at the end of his career at the end of his life. That's when London discovered union his writings and it started to give more of an esoteric to Jack's ax thinking whereas formerly he was romantic. But he's also a materialist. And you make the case that we were on the cusp of some of London's greatest work with this discovery. Three of union but also make the case that even before even in the Klondike stories. You See Union ideas pop up. Can you talk a little bit about US influence on London's work and thought it's fascinating to me Brad. Because as God what young calls the primordial vision and and stuff I just read for example from the call awhile indicates his sense of being tuned into myth. And what have you method archetypes. Without being conscious out in fact early reviewers saw some stuff in the call awhile and was more than just a dog store and said well. I wasn't aware of it. I didn't intend it but obviously it was there and that's the nature of the Primordial Vision When when it's at work the writer feels it and writes it? It creates it without being fully aware. Much is richest word as inform by what we would call archetypes and Meth. And what have you. But what happened just a few months before he died he got a copy of Batra saying goes ran. New Revision are. Excuse me not revision translation of Young's theories and he started reading that and came is why charms as I'm standing on the edge world so new in one of terrible. I'm almost afraid. Look over into it. But that's what he meant all those years and of course it did look around and the last few stories erode. Hey were deliberately implying. Employees Union theory and of course the final story the Water Bay me which I could go from in a moment here is obviously union but one visit richest stories the red one and I thought originally since he had written that in I think may nineteen sixteen. That was the first story he wrote after discovering young. Because there's so much therre that is archetypal mythical and is a story I recommend to everybody is the same motifs that Kubrick used used in two thousand and one based on Earth Seek Clark story the Sentinel Court of Course Clark Cole Road Two Thousand and one I think thank with Kubrick and one of my students have to read in the Santo Sentinel and signs facial glass. wrote to car and you got an answer. Mister Car Edgy Red Jack. London's the Redman car actually answers that nobody wished I had you know 'cause the similarities anyhow. I recommend the story for a number of reasons but I found out that London had not ran young at that time. So there's the primordial vision again but it turns out that Those half does not think thank five or six stories they read based on finding with water may are clearly based on union theory. And as far as I know London's I wanted to do. Then let's talk. You said you want to read something from the water baby to give some idea of this. WanNa go ahead and do that. This a totally in there. Have you read it. I have not right now. It's a totally different story. We're talking now about the water baby. Which is the last story jank throat? Before he died in his written just a few months I think maybe a little more than a month before his death and it's totally different from their other other earlier stuff in. There's almost no action mostly dialogue between two men a young fella the name John Connor and that's Jacqueline's Hawaiian game and I know man unnamed Kohoku and that's the Hawaiian for Voice of Wisdom. Were all Mana Wisdom. Or what have you and the young man is. They're sitting out in a boat off of shore. The talking and the young man has got to add a and not feeling too well. Leo Native is in great shape. He's seventy something years old Ben Evidently drinking at a big part of the night before raised Nalen And having a good time he's feeling great in fact the one born dives down about forty more Fatan and brings up an octopus octopus. That these men fishing for there but they're having a dialogue and the young man represents the rational national western approach civilized. Approach what have you logic than one. The Oh man is talking and in terms of Meth. And what have you. And here's a key passage couple of key passages so let me explain to you. That secret of my birth see is my mother was born in Dublin. Canoe during Kona on a gay on channel. Go home why. From her seem a mother. I received my strength whenever I return in her arms a breast class. Has I return day. I grow strong in me. Komo strong again She to me is the male. Give her the life swords. And here's here's the young guy says Queer religion you got there and the old man says when I was younger. Model my poor head over quarter religions. Listen though young wise one avidly wisdom.

"Well so this idea of imagination and going back to our country I think it's related to one of the things that seem to be wrong or something that that London talks about not only in a far country but you see it in the call of the Wild White Fang. London went up to the Klondike when people were going up there for the gold rush but in historians he talks about not one of the problems with the incapable and some of the other characters. Don't fare well in. The KLONDIKE is that they went up. There with impure intentions. Almost didn't have the right intention with the incapable. 's they went. They didn't London said they had sentimentality about the Klondike but they didn't and have the spirit of true romance adventure. What was the difference in London's west London's man I mean send mentality is losing that you're going up having a beautiful? What a lovely time out with nature whatever going have GonNa have pretty easy time just enjoying the beauties of of nature without really understanding the reality of the situation. And that's I think Percy covered as the DILETTANTE. Who thinks that? He's just he's read a lot of romantic stuff about at the animals et Cetera is going to be some kind of wonderland up their winter. Wonderland which courses nod and the other with wetherby car- Carter wetherby thing as going just for strictly materialistic gain or whatever thinks he's going to become Emma millionaire without having to do too much achieve that but the idea of true adventure abam going back to say. Hey again you. Do you want to go regardless of the danger and you WanNa find out what the new frontiers are like. You're willing to go ahead and even risk your life to To grow to find Find out what your limits might be in test them find. Our on nature is really like speaking realistically and in the far country. You've written about this. You make the case that the incapable 's as you call them London use that use those characters as a way to explore the seven deadly sins was going on. So is this actually a sermon. Got So red. I had fun with that but I if you it gave me like it out here. After an overeager show of industrious cooperation. They abandoned the all-star you're disciplined of the code discipline is a key their spiritual degeneration as they succumb to each of the seven deadly sands is initially dramatized in their social relations.

That's when they kill kill each other at the very end of the thing. That's the anger. So anyhow there's a lot in between there but ED gives you these of idea idea as ours given some fine just plan as so much. That's story I think is one of his unrated stories. It's really worth a and it says so much about the code and also about learners. They Artistry Yeah. I think I agree. You mentioned the call of the wild and and so. That's that's in the news there. They've got a new movie coming out based off the call. The Wild Disney does her starring Harrison. Ford what themes does is London. Talk about in the call of the wild that you think hit on the idea of the Northland Code. Well we're back again to adaptability the call. Awhile I mean. That's that's certainly one reason that deadbug is able to survive because he adapts even though it requires him to become something very different from what he was as they sort of bed. Ranch dog battled back on the ranch down in California's CETERA. Kind of the code that I think animals animals live by is different from the northern code. That men live by in some ways for example with the animals in with bugs. Sometimes he has to kill survive and that's not generally the case with the men in the northern code. Matt that's go back after. He may may has the will to take over to take control. They the team in what ask Avenue. He's tuffy strong but he's gone spirit and finally though it's loved that prevails rose. It's his love for John Thornton. That really saves him at the end of course to become the the the What the supernatural ghost dog with a North Av as David Lee John Thornton and now i WanNa talk at some point about the call of the wild and the fact? There's so much more there than just a dog story whenever you're ready to do that. Let's let's move right in and L.. Let's talk about that. Go ahead and let me talk a little bit about. The Universal Appeal of this novel has been translated into nearly a hundred different languages. I think thing and it's obviously more than a good dog story. It's that but much more and I wanted to talk about the call. Awhile as such a rich Work in terms of thematic richness and also literally artist's dream. The first six six chapters are pretty matter of fact it starts. The book starts with something about did not read. The newspapers Apor says pretty matter of fact interesting. And then say that about can't raid just said but did not read the newspapers but that's pretty as state estate matter of fact and the first six chapters are quite realistic. And what have you. But there's one section it is outstanding and I wanna read that. There's an ecstasy. That marks marks the summit of live beyond which live cannot rise such as the paradox of living. This ecstasy comes uh-huh when one is most alive and it comes as a complete forgetfulness. That one is alive. This this ecstasy. This forgetfulness of living comes to the artist caught up out of himself in a sheet of flame. Blame it comes to this older war. Mad I'm GONNA stricken Tejan and refusing water. It came to buck leading leading the pack sounding the Oh Wolfgramm straining after the food that was alive fled swiftly him before him through the moon line he was sounding deeps of his nature and parts of his nature that were deeper than he going back into the womb of time he was master in medishare surging live tidal waive being the perfect joy alleged separate muscle joint and send you and it was everything was not death.

The home rampant expressing itself and movement flying exorbitantly stars over the face of dead matter that it didn't move I think then that poor pre there and it's interesting that he talks about that affect I am mm-hmm I quoted in my biography in terms of Jackson. Ecstasy in Ryding. You know I mean the passion that I think enabled him to ride some of his best work there where I think more than one writer has talked about being I kind of Zone. When you're writing we had a visitor on canvas? Few years ago said that the scientists actually measured there's an increase slide increase in brain temperature. Sure when we get into that creative zone anyhow let me move quickly as possible to the seventh chapter her. The sounding of the call by the way seven is the most significant of numbers archetypally speaking signifying signifying the completion of a cycle and some other things and but has begun to this point very matter of factly note how the language changes at the very beginning of this seven. Chapter when Bucks earned sixteen sixteen hundred dollars in five minutes for John Thornton. He made it possible for his master's Payoff certain dance and the a journey with his partners. That's pretty matter fact. But no what happens their journey into the east. That's capitalized. Just after a fabled lost man history of which was as old as the history of the country many manage saw and a few had founded haven more than a few there were who had never return from the quest this laws man was steeped in tragedy and shrounded mystery. No one knew the I him the oldest tradition before we got any ham going to stop and move down a ways. Look those keywords like Tame Moonen tragedy mystery that anti-gay wearing a different world now removing supernatural R- And no it's the bottom of that page. The months came and went back and forth. They pushed in through the uncharted fastness. Where no man were yet where men had been if the laws cabin were true? They went across divides vides in summer. Blizzards Sheridan the midnight. Sun On naked mountains between the timberline and dropped into summer matinees amid swarming gnats in flies and in the shadows of glaciers. Pick strawberries and flowers arrived and fair is in the south end could boast in the fall here here. They penetrated a weird lake country. Sad and silent where wildfowl wildfowl had been Where there were there was no life are signed live on the blowing of chill wins the forming device in sheltered places and the melancholy rippling waves on only each's has has poured free again? But here's point that I I wanted to make stopping things what these guys have been through and and one thing must look like be interested in seeing who had Harrison Ford. His farmers look like in the in the movie there. They got a pretty tough embrace to survivor. What they do up there you can imagine? They were if they see some wild strawberries. burs out there they have made anything except probably PIMM gunar. Drat be for something for a good while Jerky or whatever. They eat some stronger but they're picking flowers. It just doesn't fit does it. But you don't notice because he's well when this thing so well in terms of describing you don't stumble over that at all I'm talking. This is a an instance of London's then ray artistry in the way weaves these moods for you so I just wanted to point that out in terms of the call the wild so the relationship between man and nature that Jack experienced just in the Klondike was more adversarial but he also experienced a different relationship between man and nature through his work on his beauty ranch in Glendale California India where he was a pioneer organic farming and he tried to make what was worn out land fruitful again what books to Jack Right about his ranching and farming Experience Three novels particularly the I was burning dayline and the second was Valley of the Moon. That's as long long as novel and the third was literally the Big House. Burning daylight I think is most neglected novel. I like it. It's as far as I know bread. It's the only novel in which the major character opin misers all three American archival archival heroes. The hero is frontiers ben the hero as a businessman. He Roy's Yeoman farmer all in one character actor and it's it's it's I think it's amusing. I'm not saying he one of his Great Davos but it's fun to read see what he does So in these agrarian stories. was there the Jack. London develop code similar to the Northland Code that someone had to live by. In order to thrive arrive. As a farmer I think so in terms of Camaraderie and decency honesty but love of land here as an edge dating story his first story that he wrote after moving in the Valley of the Moon Nineteen five or so all all go canyon.

"Greed blindness racial prejudice and the senselessness of our you're to the indomitable ity of the human spirit in the unveiling salvation of true comradeship. And the ageless. ageless wisdom as a great mother in the water baby. I could talk later about the great mother and archetype in the water water baby which is London's last story which is very revealing. But in more general terms I like to say that one of the overriding adding themes is love. Love of adventure. Love of Life Loves Humanity Lover Nature Her love of Man for Woman Comradeship Camaraderie love of seeking. And what have Jim. It's it's it's a kind of passion that he has and my biography of talk about the seeking drive for example that London had an extreme measure that a neuro scientists have discovered generation and go. Is that a basic drive along with fair and hunger sex in the rest of that leads mammals to seek new adventures even even the expensive food and and fair. Some sometimes anyhow fascinating to say this at work can't I can't think of other things course. The hatred of anything that was restricting the deprive human beings of of their essential humanity and liberty or whatever you though seem to be themes that run throughout his work. One thing that he I think it was a common theme. Throughout all of his work is his idea of man versus nature and nature being sort of approving ground for men. I think you've written about this as nature. There's like four types of environments that London wrote about where you see this motif of man versus nature. Can You you talk about that. At Bat Symbolic Wilderness Symbolic Wilderness. Yeah I'm going back now about fifty more years and Texas scholar in birthday of Texas scholar named Gordon. Mayo's published a very fine article in nineteenth century fiction action on the symbolic wilderness contrast James Damore Cooper's version of that wilderness with Jack Act London's saying that ten more Cooper's wilderness with pretty consistent and What have you but Jack London's burs? No the symbolic wilderness. I confusing and didn't seem to have any sense sense of the organization. Or what have you so I doubt about it. I said well. I don't think Gordon Mills Has Jack London's were carefully enough there four different versions the northland then there's pollination which I call London's tendons paradise lost and there's Melanesia which I called inferno and then there's the Valley of the moon which is Jacqueline pastoral the Wilderness. Or what have you and each has its own distinctive characteristics. They qualities that a man. Dan needs to survive in. The northland are totally different from what he needs to survive in Melanesia and the North Land. I think these spelled out pretty clearly in the opening of our country I think one of your own favorite stories my favorite story. I'd like to read this too. Because it's my favorite favorite thing that Jacklyn ever wrote. Brett disavows it out. I'm reading the beginning a far country which I call an exempt bloom in other words if preachers delivering a sermon. He wants to to tell a story. A pretty in. What dramatic story illustrated sermon? And as sometimes uh-huh called Exempt loom and. That's what that's what we got in a far country and here's the sirmium when a man journeys and to a far country he must be prepared. Forget many of the things he has learned and to acquire such customs as our inherent with the existence of the new land. He must abandon the old ideals. The old Gods and oftentimes I am seamless Reverse the very codes by which is conduct has hitherto been shaved to those who have the broke ten faculty of adaptability. The novelty of such change may be a source of pleasure but those rose who happened to be in the rats in which they were created the pressure of the altered environment is unbearable they chafe breath and body and spirit under the new restrictions which they do not understand this. Shaving is bound to act and react. HEP reducing diverse evil to various misfortunes. It were better for the man get fit himself. The new grew to return to his own country. If he delayed too long he will surely die. The man who turns his back among the comforts of Civilization to face the savage with the primordial simplicity of the North May estimate success at an inverse ratio the quantity and quality of is hopelessly fixed habits. He will soon discover if he be a fifth candidate that the material habits are the less important the exchange of such things as a dainty menu bereft fair. The stiff leather shoe for the South Shapeless Moxham of the featherbed for couch in the snow is after all very easy matter but his bench will come and learning properly to shape. His mind's attitude dylan toured all things and especially tour his fellow man for the courtesies curtis this is of ordinary live. He must substitute unselfishness for barons and tolerance. Thus that's and that's only can gain the that pearl of great rise true comradeship and this this key I think to the northern goad and the two in cable for our country There they totally and I'm faded to come up. There in. The first blazed may pay the price we I think what I love about the the intro. Oh too inefficient countries that it perfectly encapsulates and summarizes Jack. London's you call the Northland Code so you know from what we just read their what. You're is read. Their part of the Northland Code is adaptability. Exactly it's also true comradeship. Exact seems to be the two important Horton things for London when it came to the northland code both ORB. There's another factor. He doesn't mention here. He mentioned later. In addition to Adaptability Camaraderie. What have you? Oh there's another factor that comes comes up very clearly in that great classic to build a fire and I were talking about. The man does not have a name in this version. Incidentally seen the original manuscript area and at first when he started this story Jacqueline and gave the man a name. Thank as I recollect something like John Collins but after about a thousand words meaning after I think the first day he comes back and says this store would be more effective effective if I made this every man instead of a specific man now by the way you know. There's an early version of the story that we found king in Rick's now found the summers working with him out at Utah State that was about as they six years earlier unused companion totally different remiss by the same title but the young man. And there's given name in East survives this guy's not gonNa make it and here's why why by the way. London opens this story talking about how weird the situation is up there very very cold. Seventy eighty something degrees below zero gun in this guy but all nest. The mysterious far-reaching airline CEO in the absence of Sundram Aski- that tremendous coal along the strangeness and Weirdness of It all made no impression on the man was not because he was long used to it. He was newcomer in the land. Get your tranquil. This was his first winner. The trouble with him was that he was without imagination MHM. He was quick and alert in the things of live but only in the things and not in the significance fifty degrees below zero mid eighty degrees of frost. Such fact impressed. Kim is being cold and uncomfortable. And that was all it did not lead him to meditate upon his frailty not has a creature of temperature and upon man's frailty in general haber only and to live within narrow limits of hate and Co and from their own did not lead him to conjecture into the conjectural field of immortality and man's place in the universe at this is a master stroke of the artist in other words. Here's a story that is so deathly and beautifully willing together. The reader doesn't realize allies Suddenly there's a profound philosophical message in this story is more than just a man's getting golden dying from brazen death but there's another message underlying this who has just slipped in there but he's done it so both so definitely Weekly you read right on through in. Don't don't stumble over in. It's a wonderful example of what Glenn was GonNa. It was doing later on. I'll talk about. How does that Nicole Awhile? But any idea I wanted to bring in as a factor and he mentioned that other places to to the importance of imagination. If you'RE GONNA make it up there and later on ways talking about survival in the in the in Melanesia Nagia et Cetera. One of the things. They're to survive whoever. We're GONNA mega donate any imagination. Just got Biz mean is the savage is around there and resort stuff as bad as they do it totally different from the northland so one of the complaints we get about the show when people write us is this is bred. Thinks your show. I've got all these books that have added to my to read list. I don't know if I'm ever going to have the.

Then we had you on again the talk about your memoir the far music which I know a lot of our our listeners enjoyed this time. I've made a trip down to Shreveport Louisiana. Come shake your hand because I wanted to meet you after all these years and then to talk more about Jack London and in Particularly about the literary themes of Jacqueline. Because that's what you spent your career writing about researching lecturing about was Jack London and his literature. So I think the first question I'd like to start off with is how did you get started. How did you become a Jack London? Scholar I'm going back act. Nineteen forty eight bread professor at SMU. Named George Bond on talk of course in the American novel and among the novels he chose not only hemingway and faulkner walkner fitzgerald. He chose an obscure novel by Jack. London title Martin Aden my best friend. Taeb Lindsey combat veteran from the Second World War couple years older but much older in many ways took that course and Tomi Earl Martyn aiden is very powerful novel. You need to read it at that time. I had some other entrace mostly extra literary but four years later. I'm on a weekend pass to New York City from they recruit training center in Bainbridge Maryland. Downtown Manhattan just strolling around. The sides walked into this newsstand. Stand and saw twenty five cent penguin paperback of Martin. Aden well well. My friend had recommended it. I thought I look at it. I took it down border but it and my hip pocket take back to the bus. I started reading it on the bus back to the base could not put it down Brad. I stayed up all night. I didn't end up exactly. I stayed in my bunk with my flashlight on our so fascinated with that novel and I said when I go back to get a PhD. Jack London is going to be my subject and that was the beginning of my serious study. Now it was wild before I got to that because I had some other obligations. It's Damn Dunkeld. Sam in the military training recruits right said that base in Maryland also spent some time on a US yes AO destroyer. When I got out of the Navy I had a family a wife and a child and I have a job so I went to work for Hager Company in in Dallas? Men's slacks was really lucky in terms of that was Growing company but I found that they intellectual Alexa challenge of men's pants. Were a thin. After about six weeks I was doing okay from their point of view but I wanted to get back into teaching so so the same professor George Bond. Call me one Saturday morning and early. Nineteen fifty five live and said earlier's Little College Liberal Art College over in Shreveport Looking for an instructor if you're interested in getting back back into teaching I'll recommend you three weeks later.

In in some early works. Such as the Fulbright lectureship in Denmark for a year et Cetera et CETERA. But mainly I've been teaching and Morgan on Jack London. Ever since so for your Dev- you did the first major study on Jack London as he true literary artists. And you're really breaking new ground because for a long time the literary establishment didn't take London's work seriously and very few scholars had studied as craftsmanship. Why why was that in? What's the status of London today? Literature particularly in terms of scholarship. Where it's it's on the rise for sure as men for the past generation? Sure so two Mazen say what's happened in the last couple of decades but for a long time. He was dismissed as little more. There's a say then act writer for adventure stories and what have you. Fortunately there have been a number of breakthroughs was just in the last two or three decades actually to be honest bread. I think over the past half century or so. I have a lecture lectured that I give sometimes on the politics of literary reputation and I explained to my students said look the books you read. I wanted you read in high school. Many that you read and garbage were not handed down to Moses Haughton a tablet that They're selected by a certain group and those of the so-called late. They decide what you're gonna read. They decide for example. You're gonNA read Shakespeare. And maybe maybe I'll thorns scarlet letter. Which is fine? But they should be also assigned Jacqueline's the say Wolf or something and addition to you. Call it a while anyhow. London was not a part of a group that makes those decisions now. You've asked for one thing. London was Western rider and they were not part of the eastern established. Run pretty well dictated. They they literary et selections or whatever at the time and the Nineteen Aven twentieth century. Eric Miles Williamson uses the term since the IV math year. That may not be quite fair. But they gotta gotTa gotTa Fun any the idea that as those easterners back in the nineteenth century even early twentieth century centered around Boston. New York William Dean House was the leader of that group for a generation anticipating that he encouraged writers. Like Amnon Garland Stephen Grain even Emily Dickinson. And here's London. Time Damn the most popular of all of them and virtually ignored by William Dean House. Now that's got to been deliberate. I think so All of that ties end.
