A thrilling tale of Buck's fight for survival and rise to become leader of the pack, presented here with companion novel White Fang

Buck does not read the newspapers. If he did, he'd have known that for good strong dogs like himself trouble is brewing. Man has found gold and because of that Buck is kidnapped and dragged away from his sunny home to become a sledge dog in the harsh and freezing North. With strength, imagination, and cunning on his side Buck must fight for survival. But will he ever trust Man again? This book also includes White Fang a story about a wild young cub, part dog and part wolf. With additional materials for readers to find out if they're a wild wolf or a faithful dog, and learn more about the Arctic gold rush.

Jack London (1876–1916) is best known for his much-loved tales of the great outdoors, for which he drew on his experiences of the harshest environments as a seaman and as a prospector in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush.

 • "I can't celebrate the romantic ideas or the killing of savages in this book. But I can say I'm fascinated by it and that I find it worth going back to. It's a story which has gained its own life and will probably be with us for as long as we're reading books." --David Vann, Daily Telegraph
