When gold is discovered in the Klondike, Buck is snatched away from his life of ease and comfort and forced into a life of great hardships as a sled dog in the Far North. He is shocked at the brutality he meets with from both men and dogs, but gradually his body and his attitudes change, and he begins to adapt to the strenuous life and icy weather. Bucks adoption by the one man he really loves brings out strengths within himself and develops a toughness and cunning needed not only to survive, but to enable him to become the biggest and best of sled dogs, famed throughout Alaska. Then, when the time comes for Buck to leave man’s world, he is ready to answer “the call of the wild.”
