Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this quintessential adventure story, London takes readers on a grueling journey through the forbidding Alaskan landscape during the gold rush of the 1890s.

Buck, a rangy mixed breed used to a comfortable life as a family dog, is stolen by a greedy opportunist and sold to dog traffickers. In no time, Buck finds himself on a team of sled dogs run ragged in the harsh winter of the Klondike. In a climate where each day is a savage struggle for survival, the last traces of Buck's soft, pampered existence are erased as his dormant primordial urges — deeply embedded for generations — are brutally awakened.

No other novel has so clearly shown the fragile separation between tame and wild, between man and beast. The superb detail, taken from London's firsthand knowledge of Alaskan frontier life, makes this classic tale as gripping today as it was a hundred years ago.

Synopsis:

First published in 1903, andlt;Iandgt;The Call of the Wildandlt;/Iandgt; is regarded as Jack London's masterpiece. Based on London's experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness and his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, andlt;Iandgt;The Call of the Wildandlt;/Iandgt; is a tale about unbreakable spirit and the fight for survival in the frozen Alaskan Klondike.

Synopsis:

For 100 years, no other book has shown so well the fragile separation between tame and wild and between man and beast in the wilds of Alaska. This special edition of London's classic includes a Foreword by Newbery Honor author Gary Paulsen.
