The Call of the Wild

Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was brewing not alone for himself, but for every tide-water dog, strong of muscle and with warm, long hair, from Puget Sound to San Diego…

Life is good for Buck in Santa Clara Valley, where he spends his days in the golden sunshine. But one treacherous day he is betrayed and kidnapped, forced into a life of toil and danger as a sledge dog in the freezing Yukon north. Beaten, starved, frozen and abused, Buck learns to fight for his survival. Can he rise above his enemies to become the master of the dogs and wolves of the north? Now with an inspirational introduction by award-winning author Melvin Burgess, The Call of the Wild is a timeless classic.
