Presented together in one volume, these are two of the greatest and most popular animal stories ever written. Even to designate them as "animal stories" seems to undervalue them, because these tremendous works are so much more than mere children's tales, although they are admittedly still greatly loved by the young. Penned by Jack London at the beginning of the twentieth century, the first, The Call of the Wild, tells the story of Buck, a domestic dog who is kidnapped from his home in California and forced to pull sleds in the Arctic wastes. In the second, White Fang, a cross-breed that is three-quarters wolf and one quarter dog, endures considerable suffering in the Arctic before being tamed by a white American and taken to live in California. The two narratives are remarkable for the vividness of their descriptions and the success with which London imagines life from a nonhuman perspective.

Buck is a big dog living a comfortable life in California. When gold is discovered in Canada, he is stolen from his home, taken up to the Klondike region, and forced to pull dog sleds. As time passes, Buck discovers the instincts of his ancestors and learns how to survive in the wild, endure freezing conditions, and deal with cruel men and dogs. Finally, Buck finds a kind master, but in the end, the call of the wild may be too strong. This is an unabridged version of Jack London's classic American survival story, first published in 1903.

"Published in 1903 to immense popular acclaim, and since translated into more than eighty languages, Jack London's The Call of the Wild today remains one of the best animal stories ever written. London's masterpiece blends high adventure, natural lore, frontier drama, emotion, and heroism in the tale of Buck, a tame dog who perseveres through brutal captivity in dogsledding teams crossing the frozen Yukon, and who ultimately becomes the leader of a wolf pack. As Jacqueline Tavernier-Courbin discovers in this unprecedented full-length study of London's most famous novel, Buck is a classic Romantic hero, rising above harsh reality by virtue of his own true nature - his beauty, his power, his passion, and his instinct for justice."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
