Om boka

Buck, a loving and docile St. Bernard mix becomes forcibly changed when he is nabbed from his home in sunny California and sold into service as an Alaskan sled dog.

Forced to endure the harsh climate of the Yukon backcountry, Buck becomes progressively more savage in an effort to stay alive among the other dogs in the pack. Relying on primal instincts, Buck emerges as an intimidating and fearless leader in the wild.

Jack London's most famous tale is a stark reminder of how important it is to trust one's instincts. Though examined through the eyes of a dog, The Call of The Wild is a tale far greater than that of a life lived on four paws. London's intention is clear: When faced with dire and inhumane conditions, there is nothing left to do but revert to a wild state fight to stay alive.

With a new note about the author, and a cleanly typeset manuscript, this edition of London's poignant tale resonates just as profoundly as when it was originally published in 1903. A new film adaptation of this novel starring Harrison Ford and Omar Sy released in 2020.

Om forfatteren

Jack London (1876-1916) was an American novelist, activist, and prominent figure in California's literary community. Often remembered as one of the early innovators of the science fiction genre, London had a prolific scope of work throughout his career. Known mostly for his novels, The Call of the Wild and White Fang, London also wrote many other short stories, all bearing close connections to the theme of finding truth in the outdoors. During his working years as a writer, London was a part of a literary group in San Francisco called, "The Crowd." There, he advocated loudly for labor and union rights. In addition to his outdoor-themed stories, London wrote many pieces revolving around his political motives such as The People of the Abyss, The Iron Heel and The War of the Classes.
