The Call of the Wild

532 ratings, 118 reviews

Call of the Wild by Jack London is about a dog named Buck who was living a mellow life in California at the story's opening, but who's kidnapped and taken to Alaska to work as a sled dog in the Klondike Gold Rush. It's London's most popular work, and though it's sometimes considered a children's book, it can be somewhat dark and violent in places.

Buck is bought and sold several times as a sled dog, but is eventually rescued from his inept owners by John Thornton, who's an experienced outdoorsman. The two bond immediately and carry on as companions in the great Alaska wild, but when disaster strikes, Buck is drawn back into the wilderness with a pack of wolves.

Reading this again as an adult, even better than as I remember from a text on junior english course, aged 11. Particularly enjoyed the transition at the start of the novel from domestic to working dog. Might re-read White Fang by same author, similar theme only wild animal becomes domesticated.
