Inspired by the rugged landscape of the wild Northwest frontier, Jack London's immortal "The Call of the Wild" has captivated readers of all ages with its unique perspective -- a narrative from the viewpoint of a sled dog named Buck -- and its theme of man's instinctive return to primitive behavior when pitted against the brute force of nature. Based on London's own adventures in the Great White North, packaged with "The Call of the Wild" are the short stories "Diable -- A Dog", "An Odyssey of The North", "To The Man On Trail", "To Build A Fire", and "Love of Life".
