Buck, a huge and simple ranch dog, is abducted, brutalized, and sent to the Klondike, where he works as a sled dog until becoming something more feral and untamed. I must have read this first sometime in the mid-eighties. I enjoyed it this time around for the drama and for the admittedly rich, exuberant uber-macho prose --- though at times I imagined London masturbating furiously as he scratched out line after line about Buck’s lithe muscles, white fangs, hairs charged with unbridled and unconqu ...more

I enjoyed this book very much. Listened to the unabridged version. Really made me want to visit Alaska and experience some of the rugged terrain detailed so beautifully in Call of the Wild. Was also nice to read a book during the heat of the summer that deals almost exclusively with extreme winter conditions and man/dog's ability to survive and thrive. Made me feel significantly cooler. Well...that and my air conditioner on "frozen tundra" mode.
