With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly of Reading UniversityThe Call of Nature (1903) and Croc-Blanc (1906) are world-renowned animal stories.Put in Alaska during the Gold Rush of the late 1890s, the Call of Nature is about Buck, the magnificent race cross descended from a Saint Bernard and a Scottish Collie.Theft of his darling life on a California real estate and shipped to the Klondike to work as a sled dog, he triumphs over his circumstances and becomes the leader of a pack of wolves.History records Buck’s “decivilization” that he responds to the “call of wild nature” inherent in the primitive memory of the origins to which he instinctively responds.On the other hand, Croc-Blanc tells the story of a wolf born and bred in the wild who is civilized by the master who talks about trust and love.The brutal world of the Klondike, the miners and their dogs is brilliantly evoked and Jack London made the sensitive life of Buck and White Croc to face their destiny is exciting and convincing.The deepest resonance of these stories derives from the author’s use of the myth of the hero surviving by force and courage, a powerful myth that still appeals to our collective unconscious.
