Jack London’s masterpiece describing the timeless bonds between man, dog, and wilderness

Buck, half St. Bernard and half Scotch shepherd, is a bold-spirited dog living the good life in the Santa Clara Valley. But when a treacherous act of betrayal results in his kidnapping, he is stripped from his comfortable life on the California estate and thrust into the rugged terrain of the Yukon, where he is made a sled dog. Strong dogs are in high demand as the Klondike gold rush rages on, and Buck must battle the bitter cold and savage lawlessness of man and beast, striving to serve the man who shows him kindness. Can he rise to the challenges he faces and once again become the master of his realm?

Jack London (1876-1916) was born John Chaney in California USA. In 1896 he was caught up in the gold rush to the Klondike river in north-west Canada, which became the inspiration for The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906). Jack London became one of the most widely read writers in the world.

John Lee, a charming mixture of college professor and therapist, came to national prominence over a decade ago with The Flying Boy: Healing the Wounded Man, which sold more than a quarter million copies. He has since written eight other books on anger, fathers and sons, mothers and sons, and other relationships, including Facing the Fire: Experiencing and Expressing Anger Appropriately and Growing Yourself Back Up: Understanding Emotional Regression. Bestselling author John Lee has been featured on Oprah, 20/20, The View, CNN, PBS, and NPR. He has been interviewed by Newsweek, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and dozens of other national magazines and radio talk shows.

Reviews

“Fervently American.”

“In this classic…you’ll find profundity in its raw beauty and a new appreciation for canine independence.”

“Offers a strong and powerful narration by John Lee. Lee’s commanding presence is perfectly suited for these classic tales…He gives London’s work the utmost respect and admiration in his reading…His enunciation is clear and his tone impassioned. He transports listeners to the desolate North, casting them out into the wild to fend for themselves. Simply stunning. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

The Call of the Wild is the greatest dog story ever written and is at the same time a study of one of the most curious and profound motives that play hide-and-seek in the human soul.”

“No other popular writer of his time did any better writing than you will find in The Call of the Wild…Here, indeed, are all the elements of sound fiction.”

“[A] marvelously graphic picture of the great gold rush to the Klondike...Fierce, brutal, splashed with blood, and alive with the crack of whip and blow of club.”
