The narrative recounts Buck's brutal obedience training, his struggle to meet the demands of human masters, and his rise to the position of lead sled dog as a result of his superior physical and mental qualities. Finally, Buck is free to respond to the "call" of the wilderness. Over a hundred years after its publication, Jack London's "dog story" retains the enduring appeal of a classic. This Broadview Edition includes a critical introduction that explores London's life and legacy and the complex scientific and psychological ideas drawn upon by London in writing the story. The appendices include material on the Klondike, Darwin's writings on dogs, other contemporary writings on instinct and atavism, and maps of the regions in which the story takes place."--P.
