In this novel (often mistakingly classified a children’s book) the main protagonist Buck, a St. Bernard/Collie mix, is abducted and sold to a trainer of sled dogs in Alaska. He adapts to the brutal conditions and is finally acquired by a loving man. When this new owner is killed, Buck follows the ‘call of the wild’ and joins a pack of wolves.

    It took me much too long in life to finally read this book. Although, maybe it’s the kind of book best appreciated after a certain amount of accrued life experience. At its most simplest form it takes the shape of a story any dog person could surely love, but beyond the obvious layers lies lessons in the hierarchies of life...once we remove the safeguards of mans law, we’re left with something akin to the parables within this story. I love this book.
  • This book is trash

    This book is so confusing in the beginning like I don’t know if it’s about a dog or a human like just write if it’s one of them so the rest of the story makes sense

    This book was ok if you get easily attached to characters that are good and will cry if they dye or leave don’t read this book. Otherwise it was a really good book.

    I read this for my ELA class and it was a short but slightly challenging read. It was a good story and a good classic that everyone should read.
