The Call of the Wild

353 ratings

Summary

Rediscover one of literature’s most beloved classics, richly reissued in a pivotal new audio recording. Emmy and Tony Award-nominated actor Pablo Schreiber (The Wire, Orange Is the New Black) delivers a stirring performance of Jack London’s fierce yet tender tale of loyalty between man and beast, told from the point of view of a dog.    The Call of the Wild remains one of London’s best-loved novels, often regarded as the crowning masterpiece of a writer whose enduring popularity and prolific output hold a unique place in American literature.   On its face, the novel is the story of Buck, a dog stolen from his comfortable home on a California ranch and shipped to the frozen Yukon to be a trained as a sled dog. But this exhilarating tale of a canine hero’s fight for survival is in fact a vivid depiction of the great gold rush to the Klondike in 1897. Brutal and fierce on one hand, this iconic adventure story is also a heart-warming tale of the tenderness and loyalty between humans and animals, brilliantly told from the latter’s perspective.    Narrator Schreiber, whose previous performance of Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho has endeared him to listeners, brings a classic American tale to the ears - and hearts - of a new generation.

Summary

From the renowned author Jack London comes two classic adventure stories about primitivism, nature, and early 20th-century life. Seen through the eyes of two dogs, their stories are distinct yet share similarities, and they have cemented London as a literary genius and writer.  In this bundle, you’ll discover: The Call of the Wild, telling the story of the St. Bernard-Scotch shepherd, Buck, as he’s kidnapped from his home in Santa Clara Valley. Forced to survive as a sled dog in the midst of the Klondike Gold Rush, Buck must learn to embrace his wild ancestry and rise above the other canines. And White Fang, a mirror of Buck’s story about a wolf-dog hybrid and his tumultuous upbringing. Experiencing the countless dangers of both the wild and the human world, White Fang details his journey to domestication. Including complex themes such as morality and redemption, Jack London’s classic works have stood the test of time and remain central examples of literary fiction, a must-hear for anyone interested in the brilliant works of the past.

Summary

"Buck ne lisait pas les journaux, sinon il aurait su que cela risquait de barder, pas seulement pour lui, mais pour tous les chiens de la côte, à forte musculature et à longs poils chauds, du détroit de Puget à San Diego. Des hommes, qui cherchaient à l'aveuglette dans les ténèbres arctiques, avaient découvert un métal jaune, et des compagnies de paquebots et de navigation claironnaient la trouvaille : voilà pourquoi des milliers d'êtres humains se ruaient vers les terres du Nord. Or ces hommes voulaient des chiens..." L'appel sauvage, plus connu sous le titre de L'appel de la forêt, est non seulement le livre le plus emblématique de London sur le Grand Nord, mais bien davantage encore : par-delà l'aventure du chien Buck, entraîné dans la terrifiante ruée vers l'or du Klondike en 1897, rudoyé et humilié par la chiennerie humaine, c'est un extraordinaire hymne à la gloire - ambigüe - du monde sauvage.

Experience first-hand the dramatic ebb and flow of emotion as classic literature is transformed into the world of your imagination like never before. In To Build a Fire, the listener journeys alongside a hungry man and his loyal dog through the vast, bleak tundra of Alaska's Yukon Trail...a landscape so cold, time itself appears to have frozen in place. Grand musical themes with flowing melodies and dynamic rhythms support the story. Intense, stunning atmospheres of dark, sonic textures abound. Drums and percussion fill the background as rich, symphonic movements rise and fall, teleporting the listener to a foreign yet strangely familiar land. A compelling and captivating listening experience, both dramatic and introspective...and ultimately inescapable!

The story of The Scarlet Plague takes place in 2073 in the San Francisco area, 60 years after an apocalyptic pandemic called the Red Death or Scarlet Plague has depopulated the Earth. James Smith, one of the survivors, lives with his grandsons who are hunter-gatherers in a tribal world. He relates the horror of the plague to them, and tells them of the time when he was a professor of English, and of the start of the pandemic. His grandsons, who are of limited cognitive ability, refuse to believe him; they cannot believe that the disease was spread by germs as they cannot see them.

He was an illegitimate child of Flora Wellman and William Chaney. When Chaney refused to marry Flora Wellman, she tried to kill herself. She survived, but refused to take care of the baby. So, London was raised by an African-American woman and a former slave. His mother later married a man named John London, and that is probably how his surname changed to London.  In The Call of the Wild, Buck is a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life gets turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon in the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail-delivery dog sled team, Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime as he ultimately finds his true place in the world.  Enjoy this timeless classic!

The Iron Heel

Summary

The Iron Heel by Jack London is a dystopian novel first published in 1908. The narrative is unusual in being a first-person narrative of a woman protagonist written by a man.  Predicting future changes in society and politics, it chronicles the rise of an oligarchic tyranny in the United States. The main narrative covers the years 1912 - 1932, in which the Iron Heel oligarchy arose in the United States.  Canada, Mexico, and Cuba formed their own oligarchies and were aligned with the U.S. while in Asia, Japan created an empire in Asia, and Europe became socialist. (London remains silent as to the fates of South America, Africa, and the Middle East.)  In North America, the Oligarchy hold power for three centuries until it is overthrown by a revolution which ushers in the Brotherhood of Man.

Summary

In 1906, without studying navigation, Jack London, his wife Charmian, and a small crew sail to the South Pacific, hoping not to get lost. His adventures and misadventures at sea led him through native uprisings, The Doldrums, and the then unknown sport of surfing. London, one of the most popular American writers of his time, describes the construction and outfitting of his boat in San Francisco, including frustrations with vendors, with which every boat owner will sympathize. London narrates his adventures in Hawaii, his perilous navigation across the Pacific sailing through the windless doldrums to the Marquesas Islands, Typee, Papeete, Raiatea, Bora Bora, Fiji, Samoa and The Solomon Islands, before being overcome by tropical diseases and fever. This first person narrative, in its first recording as an audiobook, combines London’s spirit of adventure with his wonderful sense of humor.

The Call of the Wild Classic Children's Book

Summary

The Call of the Wild is a novel by American author Jack London published in 1903. The story takes place in the extreme conditions of the Yukon during the 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush, where strong sled dogs were in high demand. After Buck, a domesticated dog, is snatched from a pastoral ranch in California, he is sold into a brutal life as a sled dog. The novella details Buck's struggle to adjust and survive the cruel treatment he receives from humans, other dogs, and nature. He eventually sheds the veneer of civilization altogether and instead relies on primordial instincts and the lessons he has learned to become a respected and feared leader in the wild. London lived for most of a year in the Yukon and gained from that experience material for the book. The story was serialized in the Saturday Evening Post in the summer of 1903 and released a month later in book form. The great popularity and success of the story made a reputation for London, with much of the story's appeal based on the simplicity with which he presented the themes in an almost mythical manner. As early as 1908 the story was adapted to film and has seen several more cinematic adaptations since that time. About the author: John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876-November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. He is best remembered as the author of The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen" and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his nonfiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.

The Call of the Wild

Summary

The Call of the Wild is a tale of instincts and wilderness, man and wild, work and loyalty. Written and published by Jack London in the early 1900s, the novel has become one of the pinnacles of American literature, as it details the sheer willpower and stamina at the heart of the country during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. The main character is a large dog named Buck who is stolen and sold to dog traders where he is forced to work during the madness that is the Gold Rush. As Buck becomes more acclimated to his working lifestyle in the wild north, he becomes more and more wild, asserting himself and overthrowing authority until he himself becomes the top dog. After being mistreated by his many changing masters, Buck eventually meets his one true master, and they traverse the Canadian landscape together. As the two grow closer, Buck and his new master, Thornton, begin to understand that they have a close bond and that they have both saved each other to some extent. At the novel's close, Buck has become inseparable from the wilderness and finds his destiny in its vast opportunity.

Some people go out looking for bad weather or go to places where they're likely to encounter it. Others have the misfortune of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Still, the stories in Storm have more to say than that. They tell us about what happens when people find that treacherous weather - or when it finds them - and we are reminded of the fragility of life, the capriciousness of nature's will, and how little we can do when both cross paths.   Editor Clint Willis has been a climber and an armchair mountaineer since he was 10 years old.

Make Westing

Summary

A lifelong waterman, Jack London (1876-1916) left behind a rich store of bold and beautiful prose depicting life upon the sea, under sail, and in step with wild, often perilous nature. Featuring an extended introductory essay by author and sailor Edward Renehan, Make Westing presents the very best of London's nautical prose in one volume for the very first time. In these carefully selected essays, chapters, and short stories, London brings us the sound of the wind in the rigging, the rapture of solitary, starry nights spent out of sight of land, and all the other scents, sounds, emotions, and feelings so familiar to sailors everywhere. Behind every utterance lies a deep and reverent love for the sea and its magnificent, dangerous grandeur. In these testaments London reveals himself as not just an eloquent and authoritative narrator but also a boon companion, friend, and ally of all who share his passion for the delights of blue water. Contents: Introduction (by Edward Renehan); "Small Boat Sailing"; "Typhoon off the Coast of Japan"; "Good Sailors in a Wild Anchorage"; "Perilous Hours"; "White and Yellow"; "Chris Farrington, Able Seaman"; "Make Westing"; Chapter Six from The Sea Wolf; "From the Sandwich Islands to Tahiti" (excerpt from The Voyage of the Snark).

Love of Life, and Other Stories

Summary

John Griffith "Jack" London was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen" and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel. This collection includes "Love of Life", "A Day's Lodging", "The White Man's Way", "The Story of Keesh", "The Unexpected", "Brown Wolf", "The Sun-Dog Trail", and "Negore, the Coward".

El Llamado de la Selva [The Call of the Wild]

Summary

El mundo a traves de los ojos de un perro. La primera novela de Jack London, El Llamado de la Selva es una de esas obras unicas, en donde una serie de aventuras durante la fiebre del oro se ven a traves de la vision de un perro, de fidelidad unica, pero en el cual el llamado atavico de sus antepasados acaba triunfando. London estaba convencido de que la vuelta a la naturaleza, que en forma tan poderosa es en ultimas el tema de la novela, es el destino final de todo ser vivo. Es una obra llena de vida y de interes que no declina y por eso, es considerada basica dentro de la produccion de su autor. Es interesante ademas por que rompe con una cantidad de convenciones de la narrativa, entre ellas la de que no existe ningun romanticismo, sino que todo es descrito en forma impersonal. The Call of the Wild is one of those unique works, where a series of adventures during the gold rush is seen trough the eyes of a dog. It is a work full of life and interest that does not fade.

Collected Works of Jack London

Summary

"The quintessential Jack London is in the on-rushing compulsive-ness of his northern stories," noted James Dickey. "Few men have more convincingly examined the connection between the creative powers of the individual writer and the unconscious drive to breed and to survive, found in the natural world...London is in and committed to his creations to a degree very nearly unparalleled in the composition of fiction." His story of the dog Buck ("The Call of the Wild"), who learns to survive in the bleak Yukon wilderness, is viewed by many as his symbolic autobiography. "White Fang" (1906), which London conceived as a "complete antithesis and companion piece to The Call of the Wild," is the tale of an abused wolf-dog tamed by exposure to civilization. Jack London's short story, "Love of Life" is about two gold prospectors, Bill and an unnamed man, who are struggling to survive on the frozen tundra of Canada. "To Build a Fire", a marvelously desolate short story set in the Klondike. Contents: "The Call of the Wild" "White Fang" "Love of Life" "To Build a Fire"
