The Call of the Wild is a novel by Jack London published in 1903. The story is set in the Yukon during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush—a period in which strong sled dogs were in high demand. The novel's central character is a dog named Buck, a domesticated dog living at a ranch in the Santa Clara Valley of California as the story opens. Stolen from his home and sold into service as sled dog in Alaska, he reverts to a wild state. Buck is forced to fight in order to dominate other dogs in a harsh climate. Eventually he sheds the veneer of civilization, relying on primordial instincts and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild. The terrible, never relenting work of pulling sleds in sub-freezing temperatures combined with little food and rest quickly killed any dog not extremely tough. It almost kills Buck but his fierce determination to survive finally brings him through. London lived for most of a year in the Yukon collecting material for the book.
I had to read this for my 7th grade assignmen, it as prety great but the narration was kinda depressing but i think it got better :)

My all time favorite book. Loved Buck and his story. What an amazing dog. I first read this book as a kid close to 50 years ago. Loved having it read to me again.
What a exciting story. I loved Buck and his story. I first read this book 45 years ago. Thrilled to have had it read to me.
Good book but bad narrator:(:(:(:(:(
I absolutely love this book, but could not bear the narration.
The only thing wrong with this audio book is the narrator. His voice is monotone and so boring. It made a great story so hard to get through.
