One of London's most popular novels, The Call of the Wild is the story of a dog called Buck. Buck is abducted from a comfortable life as a pet and tossed into the maelstorm of the Yukon Gold Rush and the brutal realities of frontier life. Buck changes hands a number of times before landing in the kindly hands of John Thornton, a brief respite before the story's final turn when he cannot resist the call of the wild....
This classic book brings out the true spirit of the Gold Rush days at the turn of the last century. It portrays the brutality, kindness, love, and folly that JACK LONDON experienced first hand during his time in the far north. It was his first successful book, and catapulted him to literary fame.
