Publisher's Synopsis

Puffin Classics: the definitive collection of timeless stories, for every child

Join Puffin in celebrating 120 years since Call of the Wild first published with this very special anniversary edition.

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.
