About the Author

Jack London was born in 1876 in San Francisco, California. His parents weren't married and he grew up with a foster mother. Growing up in a working class family, London had a tough childhood. Desperate to escape a life of hard labour and make his way by writing, London managed to scrape together enough money to go to the University of California. However, financial difficulties forced him to leave before he graduated. On July 12, 1897, aged 21, London and his sister's husband sailed to join the Klondike Gold Rush. This time in the Northlands damaged his health and like so many other men who were malnourished in the goldfields, London developed scurvy. His gums became swollen and he lost his four front teeth. Inspired by his experiences during the gold rush, London went on to write stories which would make him a worldwide celebrity and a rich man. His most popular story, The Call of the Wild, was published in 1903 and was an instant bestseller. It was followed by White Fang in 1906. London was one of the first authors to make a fortune through his writing.

The Call Of The Wild is about Buck, a dog that is stolen from his master and is shipped to the Artic North. Buck had a life that stranded him in another environment, and he develops skills to survive in the Artic. Spitz is the dog that hates Buck because he thinks Buck will take over as the new leader of the team. Judge Miller is Buck's first owner, and he just wants his dog back. John Thornton is Buck's new owner who buys Buck and traines him to be a sled dog. Buck and Spitz run into problems with each other and ended up fighting. Judge Miller has problems because he can't find his dog. John Thornton has money problems so he uses Buck to win money for him. Buck has adventures moving to the Artic and learning to be a sled dog. My favorite character is Spitz because he is a ferocious, fearless thief who wants to be respected by every dog. But the only dog that stands up to him is Buck and Spitz doesn't approve of that.
Buck is a character that I can relate to. He has to adapt to a new environment in a new place. I will have to adapt to Boot Camp when I join the Marine Corps. It isn't going to be easy, but it will be a good experience.
I liked the book. My favorite part is when Buck and Spitz finally fight. This battle determines the strength of Buck turning into a leader and defending himself. My least favorite part is the fate of Hal, Charles and Mercedes. Their experience demonstrates how hard it was to sled from one place to another in the cold Alaskan weather.
I recommend this book to any reader. People that enjoy reading adventure stories will especially enjoy this book. The Call Of The Wild was interesting and full of adventure.

White Fang is a wonderful book. Although Jack London has some misconceptions of the nature of wolves, he has no misconceptions about the enduring power of love to heal a wounded spirit. White Fang, part dog and part wolf, is born wild into a harsh Alaskan world by a loving mother. When he is still a young pup, he comes to experience the world of native Indians, then cruel dog fighters in a heartless "gold rush" boomtown, and finally, a man which represents a more civilized and hopeful world. The book is a wonderful adventure, and sentiments fall firmly on the side of White Fang, love and fair play. It only remotely follows the story line of Disney's movie, "White Fang," so one does not preclude the other. It is also a wonderful inroduction or supplement to the sport of sleddog racing, and offers a riveting condemnation of dog fighting. Love and kindness will eventually prevail over hate and cruelty, and the book will leave readers asking for more.

Format: Paperback
Gold was found in Alaska, the rush to obtain it required a strong constitution and many dogs to do the work that horses usually did in the states. The environment bread harsh attitudes. Also in the testing of ones mettle one finds their true potential.

Buck (a dog that is half St Bernard and half Shepherd) goes through many lives, trials, and tribulations finally realizing his potential. On the way he learns many concepts from surprise, to deceit, and cunning; he also learns loyalty, devotion, and love. As he is growing he feels the call of the wild.

This book is well written. There is not a wasted word or thought and the story while building on its self has purpose and direction. The descriptions may be a tad graphic for the squeamish and a tad sentimental for the romantic. You see the world through Buck's eyes and understand it through his perspective until you also feel the call of the wild.

Call of the Wild by Jack London is an amazing book. Jack London does an incredible job at telling the story through the eyes of a dog. The dog in the sorty, Buck, is faced with some unbearable problems. He was taken from his home in San Diego, Cali. to the freezing arcitc. Through out his adventure Buck has to learn to live and adapt to his new environments. Also he learn the law of the club and fang, the man with the club has the power, and the dog whoes the strongest and the most fierce also has the power. Over all Call of the Wild is a great book that any age will enjoy. The book is not very long and the reading is fairly easy. Call of the Wild is a must have for any one who loves to read.
