Deep in the forest a call was sounding, and . . . he felt compelled to turn his back upon the fire, and to plunge into the forest. Stolen away from his comfortable life as a pet in California, Buck is sold to dog traders and soon finds himself surrounded by cruelty. As misfortune besets him, a saviour appears in the shape of John Thornton. Indebted to his new master, Buck remains by Thornton's side, protecting him with fierce loyalty. However, despite his devotion, Buck can not deny the strong lure of his own wild desires. Exploring the timeless relationship between man and dog, and the inevitable draw of primitive instincts that pull Buck towards the lawless and harsh wilderness, The Call of the Wild remains as exciting an adventure today as when it was first published.
