The Call of the Wild: The Original 1903 Edition

Book Overview
Jack London's merciless take on the survival of the fittest as set in the Alaskan wilderness during the Klondike Gold Rush was enthusiastically received in a time when Western society was eagerly interpreting the world through Darwinian eyes. The story became an instant classic, and insofar as humanity continues to wrestle with the implications of a naturalistic outlook on human affairs, The Call of the Wild remains relevant with its stark portrayal of nature, red in tooth and claw.
