Call of the Wild: Character Sketch of Buck

Uploaded by Admin on Nov 21, 1999

Throughout the novel The Call of the Wild, we follow a dog named Buck through his journey through the Klondike. We experience a transformation in him, as he adapts to the cold, harsh land where he is forced to toil in the snow, just to help men find a shiny metal.

Buck learned this law after he was beaten half to death by the man who had the club. no matter what he tried, he just couldn't win.
