The Call of the Wild
Adventure, Children's Novels
From the moment he is stolen from his home, life is not easy for Buck, a large and powerful shepherd dog. He is sold repeatedly and becomes a sledge dog living in the harsh conditions of the Northern wilderness until one day, John, a kind gold prospector, finally saves him. Buck comes to love John as he nurses him back to health and will repay him again and again with his endurance and sacrifice, resisting the ever-persisting call to return to the wolves, the call of the wild.
