Om boka

Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was
brewing, not alone for himself, but for every tide-water dog, strong of muscle
and with warm, long hair, from Puget Sound to San Diego. Because men, groping
in the Arctic darkness, had found a yellow metal, and because steamship and
transportation companies were booming the find, thousands of men were rushing
into the Northland. These men wanted dogs, and the dogs they wanted were heavy
dogs, with strong muscles by which to toil, and furry coats to protect them
from the frost. Buck lived at a big house in the sun-kissed Santa Clara Valley.
Judge Miller's place, it was called. It stood back from the road, half hidden
among the trees, through which glimpses could be caught of the wide cool
veranda that ran around its four sides. The house was approached by gravelled
driveways which wound about through wide-spreading lawns and under the
interlacing boughs of tall poplars. At the rear things were on even a more
spacious scale than at the front.

There were great stables, where a
dozen grooms and boys held forth, rows of vine-clad servants' cottages, an
endless and orderly array of outhouses, long grape arbours, green pastures,
orchards, and berry patches. Then there was the pumping plant for the artesian
well, and the big cement tank where Judge Miller's boys took their morning
plunge and kept cool in the hot afternoon.
