Editorial Reviews

Frank Muller commands attention from his first words. Muller tells the story of Buck, a St. Bernard/shepherd dog who is kidnapped from his cozy domestic life and sent to the frozen North. As Buck is misused by humans and ferociously attacked by other dogs, Muller twists his voice to show Buck’s contempt and rage. His performance is painfully real as Buck lashes out against starvation, thirst, and anyone who falls afoul of him. Thanks to Muller’s artistry, Buck’s experiences are spellbinding, especially as he learns the skills he needs to survive. Listeners will believe they can hear Buck howl and sing "the song of the wolves."

Publisher's Summary

In 1897 Buck, a shepherd dog, is kidnapped and shipped to the Klondike gold fields. Pressed into service as a sled dog, Buck is abused by humans and tormented by the other dogs - until he learns "the law of club and fang." Along with the skills Buck needs to survive - how to keep warm in the frozen land, the ability to scent dangerous weather changes, and how to fight ferociously - he learns the song of the wolves and the powerful attraction it exerts. This eloquent tale of adventure evokes with stirring realism the Alaskan Gold Rush, and the dangers and beauties of that northern wilderness.

Critic Reviews

"Muller reads with expression and variety that match the varying moods, feelings, and attitudes of all the characters, dogs included." (Kliatt Magazine)
"It gave us the sense of the cold, the snow, and most of all, the primeval feelings that London described." (The New Yorker)
