"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.
