The call of the wild – Jack London

Told from the point of view of Buck, the dog, this heart warming and heart breaking story is one which teaches us about courage, love and following our instincts. Buck is stolen by crooked dog traders and sold into worlds he never knew existed. Here, Buck encounters misfortune after misfortune; but demonstrates amazing courage in the face of adversity.

    I never thought I’d really like a book where the main character is an animal, but Jack London really makes Buck a strong and powerful protagonist.

    This is a great book. It is about a dog who is transformed from a pet to a sled dog. It shows the hardships of the dogs and the people in the gold rush in Alaska. I enjoyed the parts of the book that show how Buck learns to be a good sled dog. It has a fantastic story and a great twist at the end.
