The Call Of The Wild is the story of Buck, a dog stolen from his home and thrust into the merciless life of the Arctic north to endure hardship, bitter cold, and the savage lawlessness of man and beast. White Fang is the adventure of an animal -- part dog, part wolf --turned vicious by cruel abuse, then transformed by the patience and affection of one man. Jack London's superb ability as a storyteller and his uncanny understanding of animal and human natures give these tales a striking vitality and power, and have earned him a reputation as a distinguished American writer. From the Paperback edition.

Guy Grieve's life was going nowhere - trapped in a job he hated, commuting 2,000 miles a month and up to his neck in debt. But he dreamed of escaping it all to live alone in one of the wildest, most remote places on earth - Alaska. And just when he'd given up hope, the dream came true. Suddenly Guy was thrown into one of the harshest environments in the world, miles from the nearest human being and armed with only the most basic equipment. And he soon found - whether building a log cabin from scratch, hunting, ice fishing or of course dodging bears in the buff - that life in the wilderness was anything but easy... Part Ray Mears, part Bill Bryson, CALL OF THE WILD is the gripping story of how a mild-mannered commuter struggled with the elements - and himself - and eventually learned the ways of the wild.

"Published in 1903 to immense popular acclaim, and since translated into more than eighty languages, Jack London's The Call of the Wild today remains one of the best animal stories ever written. London's masterpiece blends high adventure, natural lore, frontier drama, emotion, and heroism in the tale of Buck, a tame dog who perseveres through brutal captivity in dogsledding teams crossing the frozen Yukon, and who ultimately becomes the leader of a wolf pack. As Jacqueline Tavernier-Courbin discovers in this unprecedented full-length study of London's most famous novel, Buck is a classic Romantic hero, rising above harsh reality by virtue of his own true nature - his beauty, his power, his passion, and his instinct for justice."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
