Facsimile of the 1912 edition. Recommended. By Jack London. Art by Paul Bransom. Jack London's novels and rugged individualism embodied American hopes, frustrations, and romantic longings in the turbulent early years of the twentieth century, an era infused with the wonder and excitement of great technological and historic change. The author's restless spirit, taste for excitement, and probing mind led him on a series of hard-edged adventures from the Yukon to the South Seas. Out of these sometimes harrowing experiences — and his fascination with the theories of such thinkers as Darwin, Spencer, and Marx — came the inspiration for adventure novels that made him one of America's most popular writers.

Jack London's novels and rugged individualism embodied American hopes, frustrations, and romantic longings in the turbulent early years of the twentieth century, an era infused with the wonder and excitement of great technological and historic change. The author's restless spirit, taste for excitement, and probing mind led him on a series of hard-edged adventures from the Yukon to the South Seas. Out of these sometimes harrowing experiences — and his fascination with the theories of such thinkers as Darwin, Spencer, and Marx — came the inspiration for adventure novels that made him one of America's most popular writers.

The Call of the Wild, widely considered London's greatest novel, is a gripping tale of a heroic dog thrust into the brutal life of the Alaska Gold Rush and forced to choose between civilization and nature. London's urgent and vivid style, intensified by his firsthand experiences of Klondike life, makes this tale as fresh and immediate today as it was upon its first appearance in 1903. By 1912 is was a recognized classic, thus noted artist Paul Bransom was given free reign to create not only 16 full-color plates, but numerous additional color and black-and-white images include headpieces, spot illustrations, and other rich embellishments, such as the American Indian-inspired endpapers.
