Why read it?

1 author picked The Call of the Wild & White Fang as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

One story is about a dog and the other is about a wolf, so they’re companion books and mirrors to each other. Both are deeply atmospheric, transporting you to the isolated, raw, cruel wastes of the frozen north, to the world of famine, brutality, and the survival of the fittest.

Read each one in a day and you’ll never forget them.
