'''''The Call of the Wild''''' is a 1903 novel by Creator/JackLondon. The plot revolves around a dog named Buck and how his primal instincts return as he serves as a sled dog in the Yukon during the Klondike gold rush. It's usually considered his best novel, and he followed it with a SpiritualSuccessor called ''Literature/WhiteFang'', a longer and even darker story about a wolf being domesticated and eventually sent to live in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco. Because the protagonist is a dog, it is often mistaken for a kid's book. The dark tone and gritty violence make it decidedly ''not''. The novel has had a lot of adaptations over the years, [[HumanFocusedAdaptation usually focusing on the human characters more than the dogs]].

Added DiffLines:

* BookEnds: When published with ''White Fang''. Amusingly, it works no matter which order you read them in -- if you start with ''Call of the Wild'' (written & published first), the book ends are set in human homes, while starting with ''White Fang'' has the book ends in the forest.
