I don't read adventure stories very often but in my effort to fill the gaps in my reading of American classics I realized I hadn't experienced any Jack London.

Call of the Wild is an adventure story that follows the path of a majestic dog from the comfort of a domestic home to, well, the wild.

Well...that and my air conditioner on "frozen tundra" mode.

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent ti
