The Call of the Wild wouldn't have been one of my first book choices when I first began reading, it but after I had finished it I wanted to share it with everyone I knew!!! The plot, characters, timing, and setting were all magnificent! Jack London truly did do a great job at illustrating what life in the wild North is like. I think that both middle, young adult, and adult readers would all enjoy this book very much. Also, if you are a dog lover, this book will have a great impact on you!
Buck has lived in the sun-kissed Santa Clara valley in Southern California for all his life. But one day he gets stolen from his kind master and is taken all the way north to a strange, cold, and icy land, far different than what he is used to. Slowly though he begins to be transformed into a whole new creature as he finally hears and recognizes, The Call of the Wild.
