A lovable Saint Bernard learns life lessons in the frozen north
A cruel twist of fate leads Buck away from his home and thrusts him into the heart of the action in the frozen lands of Alaska, at the heart of the Klondike Gold Rush. Forced to work grueling, long hours and often beaten by master after master, Buck is forced to realize that life is far from charming.
Call of The Wild may seem like another animal adventure story on the outside, but on the inside, it is about learning some of life’s harshest and most challenging lessons. Buck sees things he never thought existed and experiences emotions and pain that no dog should ever feel. In the end, he learns life’s greatest lesson — that no matter how much you run, no matter how much you try to deny it, your true self, your true life’s calling will catch up with you in the end.
There is an excellent reason why Call of the Wild has been so wildly popular over the years and continues to be to this very day. It isn’t about unwavering love of animals; it’s about the deeper themes and the affection you will undoubtedly feel for Buck when you pick up the novel.
