The article focuses on a specific extension of the concept WHITE SILENCE in the “Northern stories” by Jack London. The concept WHITE SILENCE is one of the most interesting concepts not only in the literary works of J. London, but also in American culture. Applying the statements of the concept layers structure, we discover that the figurative layer of the concept WHITE SILENCE consists of the ten conceptual features as “territorial area”, “ice”, “cold”, “snow”, “frost”, “silence”, “mental illnesses”, “famine”, “pain”, “physical death”. It also includes three microconcepts LANDSCAPE, NOTHERN NATURE, NOTHERN LIFE CONDITIONS. The most vivid means such as epithet, metaphor, intensification and personification in the “Northern stories” are used.
