Summary "Kidnapped from his California home and sold to prospectors embarked for the Yukon Gold Rush, Buck, a pampered house dog who has known comfort all of his life, finds himself thrust into a brutal world of cruel human masters, savage fellow sled-dogs, and an unforgiving wilderness full of hardship and misery. In the wilds, Buck earns the love of a man as rugged as he is, and he reacquaints himself with his true animal nature, a noble heritage passed down through tens of thousands of years of his kind's survival. First published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is Jack London's masterpiece of adventure. This edition features the classic illustrations of Paul Bransom. The Call of the Wild is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics for children. It features classic illustrations, an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, and a ribbon bookmark"--Amazon.
