The Call of the Wild (Scribner Classics)

De (autor) Ilustrat de Wendell Minor
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Hardback – October 1999 – vârsta de la 9 până la 14 ani
In this quintessential adventure story, Jack London takes readers on an arduous journey through the forbidding Alaskan landscape during the gold rush of the 1890s. Buck, a rangy mixed breed used to a comfortable, sun-filled life as a family dog, is stolen by a greedy opportunist and sold to dog traffickers. In no time, Buck finds himself on a team of sled dogs run ragged in the harsh winter of the Klondike. In a climate where every day is a savage struggle for survival, the last traces of Buck's soft, pampered existence are erased as his dormant primordial urges -- deeply embedded for generations -- are brutally awakened.
The superb detail, taken from London's firsthand knowledge of Alaskan frontier life, makes this classic tale as gripping today as it was almost a hundred years ago. No other novel has so clearly shown the fragile separation between tame and wild, between man and beast. Now, paired with master illustrator Wendell Minor's exquisite paintings, this timeless story is available in a handsome new addition to the Scribner Illustrated Classics collection.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

A best-seller from its first publication in 1903, The Call of the Wild tells the story of Buck, a big mongrel dog who is shipped from his comfortable life in California to Alaska, where he must adapt to the harsh life of a sled dog during the Klondike Gold Rush. The narrative recounts Buck’s brutal obedience training, his struggle to meet the demands of human masters, and his rise to the position of lead sled dog as a result of his superior physical and mental qualities. Finally, Buck is free to respond to the “call” of the wilderness. Over a hundred years after its publication, Jack London’s “dog story” retains the enduring appeal of a classic.

This Broadview Edition includes a critical introduction that explores London’s life and legacy and the complex scientific and psychological ideas drawn upon by London in writing the story. The appendices include material on the Klondike, Darwin’s writings on dogs, other contemporary writings on instinct and atavism, and maps of the regions in which the story takes place.


Notă biografică

Jack London was born John Griffith Chaney on January 12, 1876, in San Francisco, California. After working in the Klondike, London returned home and began publishing stories. His novels, including The Call of the Wild, White Fang and Martin Eden, placed London among the most popular American authors of his time. London, who was also a journalist and an outspoken socialist, died in 1916. Melanie Reim is professor and chair of the MA in Illustration Programme at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. An award-winning illustrator with a sketchbook never far from her side, she earned her MFA in Illustration from Syracuse University. Her work includes illustrations for book publishers, advertising agencies, museums, magazines and major corporations, with Simon and Schuster, The Millbrook Press, The Sony Corporation, Coca-Cola, Newsweek, Young and Rubicam, The Wildlife Conservation Society and The American Museum of Natural History amongst her clients. Hagit Borer is a professor of linguistics at Queen Mary University, London, and also at the University of Southern California. She studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was a student of Noam Chomsky. She is now a world expert in the study of syntax, and her three-volume Structuring Sense is a standard work in the field. Originally from Israel, Hagit left to study in the USA in 1977 and became a US citizen in 1992; having become entirely disillusioned with Israeli politics as a student, she is now an activist for the rights of Arabs in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
