The Call of the Wild, Jack London’s classic novel is set in a time when the Klondike Gold Rush had its vice-like grip on the hearts of every man, Buck is a dog caught in the crossfire. Abducted from a life of luxury, Buck is thrown into a life of labour where cruelty is more common than a meal a day. In the wilderness of the Northland, even the kindness of good man John Thornton cannot shelter Buck from learning that to survive his new life, he has to truly become one with the wild. It explores conflicts that anyone would face when uprooted to places exotic.
The narrative that holds umpteen number of layers and complexities of human and animal mind forces one to travel back to one’s roots. The Call of the Wild blends in history of the Klondike Gold Rush through an exciting sequence of events narrated as the vivid adventures of a pet dog.
