Editorial Reviews

Recipient of an AudioFile Earphones Award, narrator William Roberts does not disappoint with his robust performance of Jack London's short story about a brown wolf who appears at a mountain cottage and is eventually won over by a married couple who later discover that the wolf has an owner. Roberts unreels the story at a brisk but accessible pace, and listeners will appreciate his lively descriptions of the relationships between man, animal, and nature. Roberts depicts the characters - including the wolf - with distinctive voices that ring with sympathy and realism, and he conveys the story's bittersweet ending with a restrained wistfulness.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Classic American Short Stories collection.
Five great American short story writers, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, are represented here. Different in atmosphere and writing style, they nevertheless caught the mood and concerns of the day in a way that was distinctly American. Bierce's "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" leaves echoes in the imagination; the stories by Crane and London recall the themes of the Civil War and the Klondike for which they are well known. Twain's humor is to the fore in "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," and O. Henry's sharp observations make his neat tales a joy to listen to. An attractive and accessible collection!
