The call of the wild by Jack London
Buck is a clever and strong dog, bigger then a wolf.
He lives in Clara Valley, California at Judge Miller’s place, his owner.
In 1897 newspapers where full of stories about gold in the Northland.
All men wanted the gold and they needed dogs like Buck to pull their sledge over the snow.
One day when Judge Miller was not at home his gardener took Buck with him and sold him for money.
Buck ended up in a building with other dogs, there was a man in a red jersey, he hit buck with a club and abused many other dogs who wouldn’t listen.
The man sold Buck and a couple of other dogs to a man named Perrault. They were bought to carry mail for the Canadian Government.
Buck and the others were leaving Seattle on a ship.
They ended up in the cold Northland, Buck worked very hard for Perrault, he became very strong. He fought for his life and food.
Later Buck and the other dogs were taken over by other people: Mercedes, John, Hall and Charles.
One day in the spring they had to cross a river over ice which was very thin.
Buck and John didn’t trust it so they stayed, the others died, they sank with sledge and all.
John and Buck became very good friends.
Buck rescued John a couple of times.
Once John was at a bar, a man tried to fight him. But then Buck bit him in his throat.
John won 1600 dollars thanks to Buck who pulled a sledge with twenty fifty-pound sacks of flour for about hundred yards.
With the money Buck, John and his partners went to the east of Northland to find the famous gold.
They built a camp there and started digging for it.
Meanwhile Buck left camp every day for a long walk; he became friends with a wolf and killed a moose for dinner.
One day when Buck headed back he sensed something different, when he arrived at the camp all the others where killed by the Indians!
Buck was so mad that he killed some of the Indians.
He heard yelping, wolfs were coming his way and they wanted to fight. Buck killed them...
