In The Call of the Wild written by Jack London an easy going domesticated dog is reminded of his roots and transformed into a hard working, wild and free dog. Buck understands what it is like to live a leisurely life, but after his trip to the North he never looks back on that life with disrespect. Bucks newfound life changes him overall as a dog, almost to a point where he has to be reminded that he is a dog and not some wild beast. The Call of the Wild shows the life of Buck while using many different literary methods. Bucks long and hard life journey can easily be compared to that of Odysseus in The Odyssey by Homer.
The Call of the Wild, a novel by Jack London tells about a dog named Buck. The story begins in the Southlands, where a gardener kidnaps Buck from his pampered lifestyle and takes him up to the North.

To survive, Buck must learn the Law of Club and Fang.
Jack London's books during the late 1800's animated this theory through the use of wild animals in a struggle for survival. In fact, many prove that to survive a species "must" have an edge. In London's book the Call of the Wild, the harsh depiction of the Klondike wilderness proves that to survive life must adapt. London uses Buck as his first character to justify his theory as he conforms well to the hostile North. While at Judge Miller's, pampered Buck never worries about his next meal or shelter; yet while in the frozen Klondike he has death at his heels.
The Relationship between Humans and Dogs As the dogs pull the sleigh with all their might through the thick winter snow, they are forced to move forward by the “Law of the Club” in the fictional book, The Call of the Wild by Jack London. In the novel, London describes how a pet dog, Buck, is introduced to the wild. Buck is familiar with the dull boring life in the Santa Clara Valley, but now he is challenged into the wild. The Call of the Wild shows how there is a codependence between humans and dogs, demonstrates how humans take advantage of dogs for their personal needs, and describes how relationships between snow dogs and humans are short. First, London depicts how dogs and humans depend on each other to survive in the Yukon.
He is unfed and taunted the whole time he is in this crate he was shipped in. Once he arrives, he is horribly malnourished and is starving; but furious. He is released and charges at a man, but the man slams him in the side with a club and repeatedly does it as Buck tries and tries again. In this way Buck learns “the law of the club” as he refers to it. Buck is then sold to two French men, Francois and Perrault, and they bring him to the Klondike region of Canada and train him there to be a sled dog.
Call of the Wild BUCK, A POWERFUL DOG, half St. Bernard and half sheepdog, lives on Judge Miller’s estate in California’s Santa Clara Valley. He leads a comfortable life there, but it comes to an end when men discover gold in the Klondike region of Canada and a great demand arises for strong dogs to pull sleds. Buck is kidnapped by a gardener on the Miller estate and sold to dog traders, who teach Buck to obey by beating him with a club and, subsequently, ship him north to the Klondike. Arriving in the chilly North, Buck is amazed by the cruelty he sees around him. As soon as another dog from his ship, Curly, gets off the boat, a pack of huskies violently attacks and kills her.
Unlike Fatty, the first dog to disappear, Frog was "no fool dog" and also the "strongest of the bunch." The men eat a very gloomy breakfast, harness the sled and repeat another day across the frozen Northland. After dinner, however, they decide to tie the dogs to stakes with leather straps to prevent another dog from running away to certain death. As they settle down for the evening the dogs become agitated and Bill and Henry look up to see the she-wolf wandering through the camp, eyeing the dogs. She is a decoy for the wolf pack, remarks Henry, luring the sled dogs away as food for the pack.
