Jack London Stories The Call of the Wild The Cruise of the Dazzler and Other Stories of Adventure Author:Jack London This Omnibus of adventure is a tribute to one of the greatest storytellers who ever lived - Jack London. No man ever wrote better or more excitingly, or with greater understanding, of the Klondike and the Yukon. — Gathered into this one book are the finest of London's tales. — Here,complete, is "The Call of the Wild," the great dog story which al... more »one was one of the most popular books ever published. Buck, kidnapped from California, is trained as a sled dog for the frozen north and goes through countless adventures until at last he is saved by John Thornton from a savage beating. The love that grows between man and dog is as moving as the manner in which Buck later resolutely settles the score with Thornton's killers.
Complete also in this volume is "The Cruise of the Dazzler," the account of a runaway boy on a Pacific cruise, who falls into bad company, finds a good friend in the Frisco Kid, and benefits by his brief experience at sea.
The rugged short stories which round out this volume are similarly packed with the flavor of life at sea, the sting of the wind across the tundra, and the excitement of man and boy facing hazard and the unknown - all outstanding adventure!
