About the book
Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child
To Buck it was boundless delight, this hunting, fishing, and indefinite wandering through strange places.
Pampered dog Buck lives a comfortable life in Santa Clara Valley, where he spends his days eating and sleeping in the golden sunshine. But one day a terrible act of betrayal leads to his kidnap, and he is forced into a life of work and danger. Dragged away to be a sledge dog in the harsh and freezing cold Yukon, Buck must fight for his place in the wilderness - and a place to call home.
The Call of the Wild is a beautiful and thought-provoking tale following a dog's journey of hope, resilience and finding your family.
This edition includes an introduction by award-winning author Melvyn Burgess, a behind-the-scenes journey, an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more.
