This main character in this story is a dog called Buck who was very strong and have warm long hair. Buck lived in a big house in the sun-kissed Santa Clara Valley with his master judge Miller's family. One day, Buck was kidnapped and sent to the North land. He needs to work for the man who wanted the gold to pull the sled. His life there was very hard. Buck learned a important lessen, which is the law of club and fang. Buck worded very hard to pull the sled and he has killed the old lead dog called Spitz, Buck won the mastership. Buck had been beaten once by a man called Hal who is the third owner of Buck. Hal was being very cruel to buck and beat Buck with a club so hard that Buck was almost dead. Fortunately, Buck was found by his fourth owner called John Thornton who was a very kind man. John Thornton saved Buck's life and treated Buck very well. Buck loved John Thornton very much and he had saved John Thornton's life once too.

Buck went in to the forest many times when he lived with John Thornton, one day, when Buck come back from the forest the cabin(which Buck and John Thornton lived in), he found that John Thornton was killed by Yeehats, Buck was very angry and he lost his control, he killed all the Yeehats. Truly, Buck was a devil now.

Buck lived in the forest after that. One night, it was a full moon night, Buck join the wolf pack and became the leader of the wolfs.

Many years later, the Yeehats were still telling the story about the ghost dog, his great throat roars as he sings a song of a younger world, which is the song of the pack.

I really love this story because the story was very interesting. I learn that all animals and human and connected, we should not treated other animals with great cruelty. Edit

this book has an interesting tale about Buck, a dog. Buck originally lived comfortably in Judge Miller's house. He thought he was loved. then one day he was kidnapped from the house and sold to pull sleds in the arctic. He had many masters and dog colleges. they all passed out of his life, and when he got in possession of John Thornton, he truly felt that this man loved him. after Thornton was killed by Indians on a trip, he refused to change a master, so he gave in to the call of the wild, his wolf instincts took possession of him, and he vanished from the human world, and joined the wolf pack. This story needs to be read and analyzed to be understood properly. Once you start reading, the text makes you want to find out what happened at the ending. This book is a real cliff-hanger.
