The Call of the wild is one of those stories that as a dog lover, I adore this book and not just because it’s from the perspective of a dog. Buck’s story about survival and perseverance is one that is not easily forgotten. A fantastic modern classic, The Call of the Wild will teach children that even the biggest of challenges can be overcome, as long as you’re willing to try.
Set in Yukon, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck.
