Stolen from his home and sold into service as sled dog in Alaska, he reverts to a wild state. Buck is forced to fight in order to dominate other dogs in a harsh climate. Eventually he sheds the veneer of civilization, relying on primordial instincts and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild. CC-by-sa-3.0 Wikipedia

The Call of the Wild is a novel by Jack London published in 1903. The story is set in the Yukon during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush—a period when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The novel's central character is a dog named Buck, a domesticated dog living at a ranch in California as the story opens. Stolen from his home and sold into the brutal existence of an Alaskan sled dog, he reverts to atavistic traits. Buck is forced to adjust to, and survive, cruel treatments and fight to dominate other dogs in a harsh climate. Eventually he sheds the veneer of civilization, relying on primordial instincts and lessons he learns, to emerge as a leader in the wild. London lived for most of a year in the Yukon collecting material for the book. The story was serialized in the Saturday Evening Post in the summer of 1903; a month later it was released in book form. The novel's great popularity and success made a reputation for London. Much of its appeal derives from the simplicity with which London presents the themes in an almost mythical form. As early as 1908 the story was adapted to film and it has since seen several more cinematic adaptations.

Der Hund Buck ist der Held des Bestsellers Ruf der Wildnis von Jack London. Buck, eine Mischung aus Bernhardiner und schottischem Schäferhund, führt in Kalifornien das geruhsame Leben eines Haushunds. Als gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts der Goldrausch in Alaska seinen Höhepunkt erreicht, ziehen Tausende von Goldsuchern an die eiskalten Flüsse des Klondike-Gebietes, um die Flussbecken nach Goldnuggets zu durchsuchen. Kräftige Hunde, die sich als Schlittenhund eignen, werden in den Vereinigten Staaten knapp und teuer. Deshalb wird Buck von seinem Hof gestohlen und an einen Händler verkauft. In der Wildnis Alaskas wechselt der Hund in der Dynamik des Goldrausches mehrfach den Besitzer. Buck muss sich ständig an neue Umgebungen anpassen, gegen die Härten der winterlichen Natur durchsetzen und immer wieder seinen Platz in der Hackordnung der Schlittenhunde verteidigen. Zunehmend entfernt sich Buck von dem zivilisierten Verhalten eines Hofhunds und akzeptiert das in der Wildnis geltende Recht des Stärkeren, um zu überleben. Buck wird durch Zufall aus dem Besitz eines besonders skrupellosen Hundebesitzers befreit und folgt fortan seinem Retter John Thornton. Das Tier entwickelt eine enge Beziehung zu Thornton. Doch weiterhin spürt Buck den Ruf der Wildnis in sich. Der Roman Ruf der Wildnis (engl.: The Call of the Wild) erschien erstmals 1903. Es ist eines der erfolgreichsten Werke Jack Londons und zählt zu den Klassikern der nordamerikanischen Literatur. Der Ruf der Wildnis ist bis heute ein Bestseller geblieben. In Ruf der Wildnis greift Jack London auf seine eigenen Erfahrungen als Goldgräber in Alaska aus den Jahren 1897/98 zurück. Jack London lebte von 1876 bis 1916. Er wuchs in Oakland (Kalifornien) in einfachen Verhältnissen auf. Er arbeitete unter anderem als Matrose, Gelegenheitsarbeiter und Goldsucher. Bekannt wurde er durch die Bestseller Der Ruf der Wildnis und Der Seewolf. Beide Werke wurden mehrmals verfilmt.
