The Call of the Wild


This collector's edition is cleanly formatted for easy reading. 12 point Garamond, 1.25 spacing. Jack London's masterpiece, The Call of the Wild, is based on the author's experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness. It immortalizes London's ideas about nature and the unbreakable will to exist. It is about spirit and struggle, survival, and success. The story takes place in the Yukon during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush when strong sled dogs were in demand. The novel's protagonist is a domesticated dog named Buck. As the story begins, he lives at a ranch in the Santa Clara Valley of California. When Buck is stolen from the ranch and sold as sled dog in Alaska, he reverts to his primal state. He has no choice but to dominate other dogs in a brutal climate. He sheds all softening effects of civilization and relies on his primordial instincts and acquired experience to emerge as an alpha dog. It is a beautifully told tale of survival. The Call of the Wild is a book with a heart. It is a book with a conscience.
