Detailed Product Description
New York, MacMillan, 1912 "New Edition". 257 pp + 4 pp adverts at rear, color plates and decoration by Paul Bransom. Blue cloth pictorial hardcover with gilt titles. Near Fine. The handsome decorated cover uses identical art work to the first edition. 

The Call of the Wild is a short adventure novel by Jack London, published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively primitive and wild in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs. By the end, he sheds the veneer of civilization, and relies on primordial instinct and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild.

London spent almost a year in the Yukon, and his observations form much of the material for the book.
