The Call Of The Wild


The Call Of The Wild


“Old longings nomadic leap,

Chafing at custom’s chain;

Again from its brumal sleep

Wakens the ferine strain.”


The Call of the Wild, considered by many London’s greatest novel, is an enthralling tale of the heroic dog, Buck, forced into the brutal life of the Alaska Gold Rush, and ultimately facing a choice between living in man’s world or returning wild to nature. Adventure and dog-story enthusiasts will find this classic work a thrilling, memorable reading experience. The Call of the Wild is not only a great novel about dogs, but also a perceptive comment on the human condition.


JACK LONDON (1876-1916) was an activist, journalist, short-story writer and one of the most widely translated of American authors.  London published over 50 books, and is most famous for The Sea Wolf, White Fang and The Call of the Wild.
