    The Call of the Wild

    Jack London

    The Call of the Wild is a novel by American writer Jack London. The plot concerns a previously domesticated and even somewhat pampered dog named Buck, whose primordial instincts return after a series of events finds him serving as a sled dog in the treacherous, frigid Yukon during the days of the 19th century Klondike Gold Rushes. Published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is one of London's most-read books, and it is generally considered one of his best. Because the protagonist is a dog, it is sometimes classified as a juvenile novel, suitable for children, but it is dark in tone and contains numerous scenes of cruelty and violence. London followed the book in 1906 with White Fang, a companion novel with many similar plot elements and themes as The Call of the Wild, although following a mirror image plot in which a wild wolf becomes civilized by a mining expert from San Francisco named Weedon Scott.

    The Call of the Wild

    Jack London

    Buck, a sturdy crossbreed canine (half St. Bernard, half Shepard), is a dog born to luxury and raised in a sheltered Californian home. But then he is kidnapped and sold to be a sled dog in the harsh and frozen Yukon Territory. Passed from master to master, Buck embarks on an extraordinary journey, proving his unbreakable spirit… First published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is regarded as Jack London's masterpiece. Based on London's experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness and his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, The Call of the Wild is a tale about unbreakable spirit and the fight for survival in the frozen Alaskan Klondike.
    No other popular writer of his time did any better writing than you will find in «The Call of the Wild». —H. L. Mencken. Few men have more convincingly examined the connection between the creative powers of the individual writer and the unconscious drive to breed and to survive, found in the natural world… London is in and committed to his creations to a degree very nearly unparalleled in the composition of fiction. —James Dickey

    Pañuelo amarillo

    Jack London

    La función propia del hombre es vivir, no existir. No malgastaré mis días tratando de prolongarlos. Aprovecharé mi tiempo", puntualizó Jack London. A diferencia de otros escritores norteamericanos, Jack London no quiso escribir la Gran Novela, sino vivir La Gran Aventura. Su vida fue la de un aventurero que escribe. Fue un hombre inquieto. Este mismo afán de vida se refleja en los cuentos aquí seleccionados. Hay una aventura, paisajes exóticos y lejanos, tormentas de mar y de nieve, pero también una interesante incursión en eso que llaman condición humana.
