THE CALL OF THE WILD (CHAPTER ONE) #JackLondon #thecallofthewild This Jack London classic tells the story of a dog named Buck who is kidnapped from his home in California and sold as a potential sled dog to Alaskan mail packers. In this opening chapter, Buck is beaten mercilessly by one of his handlers, making this chapter unsuitable for young children, and rough on adults as well, but it is important to the story and to Buck's metamorphasis from a gentle family dog to a creature of the wild. He is bought by an Alaskan mail carrier and learns to work on a sled team of nine dogs, learning how to survive both the dogs and the harsh environment. London is an expert at attaching human qualities to the dogs, showing them to be equally brutal as some humans, and painting a picture of the beautiful but deadly Alaskan landscape. Ever wonder why some pet dogs "make a nest" before they retire for sleep? That goes back to prehistoric times, and you'll discover the answer within the first three chapters. Buck, later in the story, finally escapes and survives in the wild until he is rescued by a kind man, who becomes his friend. It is an incredible story, told from Buck's point of view.
