    "Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it."

    Call of the Wild

    by Jack London

    Book Description

    A story of strength and survival Buck is a dog born to luxury, but when he is sold to be a sledge dog in the harsh and frozen north he must quickly learn how to survive. He soon earns a reputation for his strength and courage and endures physical exhaustion, fierce battles with other dogs, and cruel treatment from a series of masters before he is saved by John Thornton and learns to love. But the call of the wild is strong, awakening primitive feelings of life in a wolf pack. When his beloved master is killed, Buck is finally free to follow that call. The Call of the Wild was first published in 1903 and quickly became a huge bestseller. A masterpiece of adventure and survival, it continues to enthrall readers almost a century on.
