Author(s): Jack London
"When the pampered Buck is kidnapped from his beloved home in the Santa Clara Valley and forced to work as a sled-dog in the frozen wilderness of the Yukon, he must forget the long, lazy days of sleeping in the sunshine, and face a life of constant toil and danger, where survival itself must be fought for. But with his primal instincts reawakened, how long can Buck resist the call of the wild?
Set at the time of the Klondike gold rush, The Call of the Wild is one of the great evocations of the natural world, and perhaps the best example of London's famously urgent and vivid style. This edition includes also Moon-Face, Brown Wolf, That Spot, To Build a Fire and B otard. It also contains a section of extra material for young readers including a section about the Artic Gold Rush, a quiz and test yourself."
