The Call of the Wild

The Call of the Wild

by Jack London

No man ever became great who did not achieve the impossible.


Jack London
(Copyright Bettman/Corbis)

Jack London's The Call of the Wild is a singular classic. It is a great novel that can be appreciated by readers of all ages, as well as a philosophical book that provides an action-packed adventure. Oddest of all, it is an experimental novel (half of the characters are canine, including the hero) that is a thrilling pleasure to read. No wonder this American novel has never lacked readers—both here and abroad.
