After insurmountable odds and countless tragedies, Buck finally learns to become one with his wild side in Call of the Wild. The men contrary to cowards. I had never heard of Jack London before and my sister recommended this book to me, but I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading through its 303 pages. I do not like to read.

If I start a book,on the front cover of the book there is a wolf in the four corners and they faid into one wolf in the middle.
True, the stories are violent, but that goes with the setup of the north. White Fang, who is three-quarters wolf and one-quarter husky, enters the story in the first month of his life, and London describes his step-by-step development as he emerges from the lair and learns how to hunt. The portrayal of wild wolves is similar, but very different.

I really had the impression of traveling to that northland, and living with these dogs, day by day.
If need be, small groups can divide and conquer when browsing the websites. It is overall a very unforgettable adventure.
