From the Publisher:
When men find gold in the frozen north of Canada, they need dogs - big, strong dogs to pull the sleds on the long journeys to and from the gold mines. Buck is stolen from his home in the south and sold as a sled-dog. He has to learn a new way of life - how to work in harness, how to stay alive in the ice and the snow . . . and how to fight. Because when a dog falls down in a fight, he never gets up again.

Author Bio
Jack London
John Griffith London came from a poor family and, as a boy, dropped out of school to sell newspapers and do odd jobs to survive. His father deserted the family and refused to acknowledge London as his son. The boy went to sea, was a gold miner in the Klondike, and worked as a war correspondent; he was also jailed for vagrancy, a traumatic experience that reinforced his deep distrust of the capitalist system and his embrace of socialism. London's fiction is imbued with the rugged living he experienced. During his prolific career, he wrote over 50 books: short stories, novels, and other works. Although enormously successful, London eventually went into debt, and was plagued by personal demons, including alcoholism. He suffered from kidney disease and died at the age of 40 of a morphine overdose that was probably intentional.
