Synopses & Reviews
The biting cold and the aching silence of the far North become an unforgettable backdrop for Jack London's vivid, rousing, superbly realistic wilderness adventure stories featuring the author's unique knowledge of the Yukon and the behavior of humans and animals facing nature at its cruelest.
Two of London's famous wilderness tales available in one volume. White Fang and The Call of the Wild illuminate the often tragic consequences of the conflict between nature and civilization, and yet reward readers with amazing, rousing adventure stories.
Two classic stories-one indispensable volume.
Timeless tales of wolves, dogs, men, and the wild, The Call of the Wild and White Fang are two of the world's greatest adventure stories.
