"That Spot" is a short story written by Jack London in 1908. London is most famous for his adventure stories.
In 1897, when London was 21, he joined the Klondike Gold Rush. He was hoping to strike it rich, but by the time he arrived, all the good claims were taken, and he returned to California the following year—just as broke as when he left, his health ruined by the harsh conditions and months of near starvation in the gold fields.
His experience in the Klondike inspired him to write some of his best stories, including Call of the Wild and White Fang. His short story "That Spot" is also set during the Klondike Gold Rush.
