This year, i read the book Call of the Wild by Jack London. The Call of the Wild takes place in Yukon, Alaska, Klondike, Canada, and Santa Clara Valley, California. The main character is a dog called Buck, a crossover between a St. Bernard and a Scotch Shepherd. One night Judge Miller (Bucks Owner) is at a meeting and the gardener, Manuel steals Buck to pay off his debt for Chinese Gambling. Buck is sold to Francois and Perrault. The men beat Buck with a club and mistreat him. They train Buck to become a sled dog, something Buck was never trained to do. Since Buck was unaware he had been sold, he obeyed their orders in the beginning yet became disobedient when he was not returned to Judge Miller. His life from a house pet to a sled dog was very challenging. The French Canadian men meet musher John Thorton. John Thorton sees that Buck is being mistreated and takes Buck from Perrault and Francois. John Thorton is a much better man then the French-Canadians. John Thorton gets killed by Native Americans. Buck is very hurt and seeks revenge for John Thorton’s death, he kills the Native Americans that killed John. After John Thorton is killed Buck lives in the wild and begins to live the life of a wolf. He relies on nature for food, shelter and comfort rather than people. He returns sometimes to the place of John Thornton’s death to grieve. This book shows that a dog really is a "man's best friend) I would recommend this to any age if you are at a high reading level, or if you just want to try it out!
