Call of the Wild, The
At first, Buck does not understand his restlessness. Something is calling him...a sound, a feeling, a desire...too compelling to ignore. Day after day it grows more urgent, until finally the magnificent dog understands and obeys. Buck has to leave the world of human beings and campfires to answer "the call of the wild." Born in San Francisco to an impoverished family, Jack London was virtually a self-educated man. He quit school at the age of 14 to support himself and to find adventure. For a time, he earned a living as a factory worker and as a sailor. In 1897, he traveled to the Yukon Territory, as a gold prospector. London's experiences in the Far North led to the writing of The Call of the Wild and White Fang. His novels were an immediate success and brought him fame and wealth at an early age. When he died in 1916, Jack London had written 50 books.
