"The Call of the Wild" by Jack London

Wednesday, March 9, 2022, 6 p.m.

During the late nineteenth-century, London traveled to the Klondike region of northwestern Canada to strike it rich in the gold rush. Set in the harsh wilderness of the Yukon territory, The Call of the Wild is a story embodied with a realism indicative of London’s prospecting experience. The tale follows Buck, the pampered pet of Judge Miller and his family, who is snatched from his genteel home in California’s Santa Clara Valley. Stolen by a gardener’s assistant to finance gambling losses, Buck is faced with both an arduous journey to the faraway frontier and the brutal realities of life as a sled dog.
