Meet the Author

Jack London was born on January 12, 1876 in a poor area of Oakland, California. He was a troubled young man who started writing at age twenty-four. His stories of men and animals against the environment and survival against hardships were drawn mainly from his experience. His years in the Klondike searching for gold left their mark on his best short stories, The Call of the Wild and White Fang. Sea Wolf was based on his experiences at sea. In his short life Jack London traveled to many countries. In the course of sixteen years, he wrote nineteen novels, eighteen books of essays and short stories and many other books. He retired to his ranch near Sonoma where he died at age 40 on November 21, 1916.

Read an Excerpt

Buck did not know much about the world. He didn't know that far away, in a cold land, men had found gold. There was so much snow in this land that men needed sleds to get from place to place. And they needed strong dogs to pull their sleds. Many men were looking for big, strong dogs with warm coats, like Buck. But Buck had no way to know that. When Judge Miller rode his horse, Buck was there to race at his side. When Mrs. Miller went walking, Buck went with her. And when the Judge's sons took their morning swim, Buck joined them in the pool. The people in Buck's life had been good to him. He did not know that some people could be bad. So one night, Buck went right along with the gardener's helper on what he thought was just a walk. The train station was not far away. Buck had been there before. At the station, the gardener's helper met another man. This man gave the helper some money. He spoke in an angry way. The gardener's helper was quick to take the money and tie a rope around Buck's neck. Buck did not like any of it, but he was quiet.
