Waterstones Says

The gripping story of a sled dog kidnapped and put to work in the frozen Yukon, The Call of the Wild reflected London’s passion for animals and the great outdoors. Suffused with the clear, cold air of the Canadian wastes and written with muscular pace and incident, this is a turn-of-the-century classic beloved by young and old alike.

'The facts of life took on a fiercer aspect and, while he faced that aspect uncowed, he faced it with all the latent cunning of his nature aroused.'

The biting cold and the aching silence of the far North become an unforgettable backdrop for Jack London's vivid, rousing, superbly realistic wilderness adventure stories featuring the author's unique knowledge of the Yukon and the behavior of humans and animals facing nature at its cruelest.

The Penguin English Library - collectable general readers' editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century to the end of the Second World War.
