Publisher Description

Jack London’s adventurous nature, intuitive feeling for animal life, and superb storytelling skills give his tales a striking vitality and force. Thrilling action and a sense of justice characterize the classic stories in this collection.

White Fang

In the desolate, frozen wilds of northwest Canada, a lone wolf fights the heroic daily fight for life in the wild. But after he is captured and cruelly abused by men, he becomes a force of pure rage. Only one man sees inside the killer to his intelligence and nobility. But can his kindness touch White Fang?

The Call of the Wild

A bold-spirited dog named Buck is stripped from his comfortable life on a California estate and thrust into the rugged terrain of the Klondike. There he is made a sled dog and battles to become his team’s leader, as well as the devoted servant of John Thornton, a man who shows him kindness amid the savage lawlessness of man and beast.

Quotes

  • “Lee’s commanding presence is perfectly suited for these classic tales of the Klondike, in which animals fight for survival against all odds. The stories are legendary, and Lee is certainly aware of this. He gives London’s work the utmost respect and admiration in his reading while making each story his own through his captivating performance. As he brings every word to life, his enunciation is clear and his tone impassioned. He transports listeners to the desolate North, casting them out into the wild to fend for themselves. Simply stunning. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    - New York Sun on The Call of the Wild
  • “A thrilling story of adventure…stirring indeed…and it touches a cord of tenderness that is all too rare in Mr. London’s work.”
