When Buck is smuggled from his beloved home in the Santa Clara Valley and forced to work as a sled-dog in the frozen wilderness of the Yukon, he must forget the long, lazy Californian days and face a life of constant toil and danger under the whip of cruel or inept masters, where survival itself must be fought for.

But with his primal instincts stirred, how long can Buck resist the call of the wild?Set at the time of the Klondike Gold Rush, The Call of the Wild is one of the greatest evocations of the natural world, and perhaps the best example of London’s famously urgent and vivid style.

This edition also includes ‘Brown Wolf’, ‘That Spot’ and ‘To Build a Fire’ – three Yukon tales that demonstrate London’s mastery of the short-story genre.
