Jack London’s masterpiece describing the timeless bonds between man, dog, and wilderness

Buck, half St. Bernard and half Scotch shepherd, is a bold-spirited dog living the good life in the Santa Clara Valley. But when a treacherous act of betrayal results in his kidnapping, he is stripped from his comfortable life on the California estate and thrust into the rugged terrain of the Yukon, where he is made a sled dog. Strong dogs are in high demand as the Klondike gold rush rages on, and Buck must battle the bitter cold and savage lawlessness of man and beast, striving to serve the man who shows him kindness. Can he rise to the challenges he faces and once again become the master of his realm?

Quotes & Awards

  • The Call of the Wild is the greatest dog story ever written and is at the same time a study of one of the most curious and profound motives that play hide-and-seek in the human soul.”

    Carl Sandburg

  • “No other popular writer of his time did any better writing than you will find in The Call of the Wild…Here, indeed, are all the elements of sound fiction.”

    H. L. Mencken

  • “[A] marvelously graphic picture of the great gold rush to the Klondike…Fierce, brutal, splashed with blood, and alive with the crack of whip and blow of club.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

    " A book I had to read school that I enjoyed. While I am not one to read about animals as the main character often, this is one I'd recommend for the people who normally do. It shows the strength of this dog/wolf (for the sake of argument I'm saying dog). It shows how he adjusts through out his life. "

    " I read this when I was a kid. Great story, I loved it at a time when i hated reading. However, I wonder if it will be just as good to read as an adult. Easy read "
