Call of the Wild
A classic novel of adventure, drawn from London's own experiences as a Klondike adventurer, relating the story of a heroic dog, who, caught in the brutal life of the Alaska Gold Rush, ultimately faces a choice between living in man's world and returning to nature.
Jack London became one of, and perhaps the most successful writer of the turn of the 20th century. Fifty-one of his books, innumerous articles and short stories were published, and in addition, materials from his letters and personal journals were published posthumously. The best known of these books is The Call of the Wild. It was published as a serialized story on the Saturday Evening Post from June 20 to July 18, 1903.
