ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Call of the Wild is the story of a dog in the frozen Yukon told from his point of
view. But this brilliantly told tale of a canine hero is in fact a graphic picture of the
great gold rush to the Klondike in 1897. Brutal and fierce on one hand, it is also a
story of tenderness and loyalty between man and beast, and remains one of the bestselling
books in American literary history.
