Publisher's Summary

The Call of the Wild is Jack London's most popular and enduring work. Set in the frozen wasteland of the Yukon, it tells the story of the magnificent dog Buck, who is a loyal family pet until cruel men steal him and make him a pawn in their feverish search for the gold of the Klondike. Brutally beaten into serving as a sled dog, Buck finds the blood of his wolf ancestors rising within him. Unable to resist the call from the Alaskan wilderness, he breaks free to roam as the leader of a ferocious wolf pack.

If you love & understand dogs, read this book.

A bit romantic but believable. The nobility of dogs versus the savagery and ignorance of men, and one noble man. Ethan Hawke's reading is perfect, giving added power to London's prose.
