Summary

"Call of the Wild" is the story of Buck, a magnificent dog who is stolen from his idyllic life and sold for use on a Yukon dogsled team. His travels are not only of a physical nature, as he learns hard discipline from men who must discipline their dog teams, but his own journey back to his primordial roots in the frozen tundra - the roots of wolf. This amazing story of transformation is beautifully written and provides a glimpse of the hard life in the Yukon Territory during the 1900s.

Classic story from the perspective of the dog

But nothing fantastical, everything believable, and a great story told with a deep rumbling voice.

Classic and timeless

Excellent story that I could read/listen to over and over.

Narration was okay but a lot like AM Radio quality.

Great story, good narrator.

Ron Swanson approved. A Hemingway-esque classic. Narrator's voice fits the story, a few mispronounced words.

Great book!

Love this book and the performance. Deducted a star for all the mispronunciations, but definitely recommend this version.

Dat Buc is wonderful.

I will faithfully return to the Call of The Wild when that primal craving for adventure lures me from my domestic security.

So good!

Not just a classic, it’s also a great book. If only it was just a little longer.
