Jack London’s classic story explores wilderness adventure and the return to the wild. Focalised through a sled dog known as ‘Buck’, this story takes readers from California, to Alaska and into Canada’s Klondike country. London explores the tension between domestication and the wilderness and readers are presented with the allure of the wild. ‘The Call of the Wild’ is a reminder that the earth was not always subdued and that sometimes it takes a return to animal instincts in order to thrive. A sweeping dog story that reminds readers of the connection to man and connection to nature that play tug of war within the great beasts that helped chart the northern reachers of North America.
