This list was made in response to this request for stories mention Jack's childhood or show that's he not from the 21st Century. It's tagged on Delicious under storyfinder:jackbackstory.

I've split this list into two parts. The first lists stories about Jack's younger years, while he was still living on the Boeshane Peninsula (or at least they start there). The second lists stories that show Jack still in his--for lack of a better term--formative years, before he met the Doctor and while he was still, more or less, in his native time and place.

I don't think I did a great job listing stories that showed Jack being out of place in the here and now, so I might go back and refine the list at a later date.

And, one more story I added because it's a lovely piece about Jack and Tosh and an alien language, and does show some of Jack's non-Earth, non-21st Century origins.
