In this novel (often mistakingly classified a children’s book) the main protagonist Buck, a St. Bernard/Collie mix, is abducted and sold to a trainer of sled dogs in Alaska. He adapts to the brutal conditions and is finally acquired by a loving man. When this new owner is killed, Buck follows the ‘call of the wild’ and joins a pack of wolves.

    This book is so sad but also happy!!! I love it!! I feel bad for Buck, though. He had like 20 different owners.
  • Way to boring and long

    I'm 12 years old and I had to read this book for school. I found myself falling a sleep and actually falling asleep for half hours at a time. It had its moments but I didn't like this book at all. too boring
  • The best historical novel in the history of the world.

    I am an avid reader of modern fantasy and sci if, but never have I ever read a book as to surpass this one. I received it as a gift from my late great grandfather and hold it very dear in my life. The story is beautifully designed and expertly executed. Page for page it is better than any other work of fiction I have ever experienced. I promise that upon reading this book you will be better for it than doing most other things in our lives.

    I am doing this book for a project and I don't usually like ppl picking the books I read but, this one is one of the best! It shows a tremendous amount of detail and uses lots of different vocabulary! I would definitely recommend this to my friends!
  • An amazing and inspiring read

    By Dirtay Dima
    Wow!! I've heard of this book and just now after 30 years of living, have I decided to give it a read. It's an easy book to read. It's so very inspiring about unleashing your inner spirit and true self. Yes it's about a dog but it's about more than that. I will read this book many times over
