"Call Of The Wild"

By: Jack London


A powerful dog, half St. Bernard and half sheepdog, who is stolen from a California estate and sold as a sled dog in the Arctic. Buck gradually evolves from a pampered pet into a fierce, masterful animal, able to hold his own in the cruel, kill-or-be-killed world of the North. Though he loves his final master, John Thornton, he feels the wild calling him away from civilization and longs to reconnect with the old self of his own kind.

John Thornton

Buck’s last master, a experience gold hunter. Thornton saves Buck from death at the hands of Hal, and Buck rewards Thornton with fierce loyalty. Thornton’s relationship to Buck is the ideal man-dog relationship: each guards the other’s back and is completely devoted to the other. The strength of their bond is enough to keep Buck from acting on the forces he feels are calling him into the wild.

I recommend this book because

Its like trying to find your true self like this dog he found his own true self and the fact that he never feared the challenges he had to face. This experience, though, far from destroying him, makes him stronger, and he wins back his kingdom or rather, he wins a new kingdom, a wild one that better suits his true destiny as a wild animal.
