The Call of the Wild

Author: London, Jack Set In . . .
 North America, Canada, Yukon, USA, Alaska
Genre: Fiction
Time Frame: 1800s
Published: 1903

In this classic American adventure, Jack London explores the laws of civilization and wilderness—and the pull of instinct—through the eyes of Buck, a half Saint Bernard, half Scottish shepherd. Stolen from his comfortable life in California, Buck is sold into service as a sled dog during the Klondike Gold Rush, where returning to his primordial nature is the only way for him to survive.

London drew on his own experiences as a prospector in the Canadian wilderness, as well as the philosophies of Charles Darwin and Friedrich Nietzsche, for this enduring tale of survival.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Call of the Wild, this edition of The Call of the Wild (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
