Robust tales of perilous adventure and animal cunning
Includes Diable: A Dog, An Odyssey of the North, To the Man on the Trail, To Build a Fire, and Love of Life Out of the white wilderness, out of the Far North, Jack London, one of America's most popular authors, drew the inspiration for the novel and five short stories included here. Swiftly paced and vividly written, they capture the main theme of London's work: man's instinctive reversion to primitive behavior when pitted against the brute force of nature.

I read this book in English and I absolutely hated it. I mean, it is very well written, and it is one of the most detailed book I've ever read, but I just don't like it. It was a bit too well written. I couldn't understand anything for about half the time! If you have read many books and have a big vocabulary, this is the book for you. But if you just don't like books with big words, this probably isn't the book for you.
