The Call of the Wild - Jack London Book Description

In this novel (often mistakingly classified a children’s book) the main protagonist Buck, a St. Bernard/Collie mix, is abducted and sold to a trainer of sled dogs in Alaska. He adapts to the brutal conditions and is finally acquired by a loving man. When this new owner is killed, Buck follows the ‘call of the wild’ and joins a pack of wolves.

    I read this for my ELA class and it was a short but slightly challenging read. It was a good story and a good classic that everyone should read.

    I am not an avid reader. So, not much to compare. Although, this is by far the best book I've ever read. Many things to overcome and finding the internal strength to continue moving forward. A strength that was always there but took time to understand and use. Just amazing.

    This book is so sad but also happy!!! I love it!! I feel bad for Buck, though. He had like 20 different owners.
