The Call of the Wild and White Fang, two American classics by Jack London, are presented together in this elegantly designed jacketed hardcover edition featuring an introduction by Jack London scholar Kenneth K. Brandt.
The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906) are two classic American adventure novels depicting the evolution of two dogs in the wild. The novels are in fact mirror images of one another, as Call of the Wild depicts Buck’s journey from domestic to wild dog, while White Fang recounts White Fang’s transformation from wild beast to domestic companion. Both convey powerful themes of redemption and survival that continue to affect readers even today.
These beautifully written stories, now together in one highly produced volume complete with a timeline of the life and times of Jack London, are a perfect addition to any young adult’s library. Anyone with a taste for adventure, who loves the outdoors or camping, or who spends time daydreaming about living self-sufficiently will be enamored by these adventure stories.
