This was a runaway bestseller in Jack London's time and remains one of the most exciting adventure stories ever written. This is the story of Buck, a dog abducted from his home and thrust into the merciless world of an Arctic north consumed by a quest for gold. To survive on the outer edges of civilization, Buck must endure many hardships, including bitter cold, the savagery of a life ruled by the laws of club and fang, and the lure of a strange and age-old call.

The Call of the Wild is more than great storytelling. With fascinating details of the Alaskan gold rush and the science of mining, as well as close-ups of animal behavior, it is also a remarkable snapshot of its time.
