Buck, a big dog, lived in the peaceful and safe south. But he was stolen and sold because men need big, strong dogs to work in the north. The dangerous and hard jobs and life make Buck change.
Buck is a clever and strong dog, and he was forced to do extremely hard labor. I don't like that. I'm sorry for Buck. But I think the severe life makes Buck wild and tells him many things. So I can't decide if it's good for Buck or not. I think dogs have their own will. It's not humans but dogs to decide it. ( )

Beck, which is a strong but kind dog, is suddenly stolen from his home and take north.
He is a tool of human who want to find gold.
He used to be timid, but by training, he becomes a wild dog, and finally he becomes a lead-dog.
He learns not only how human are terrible, but also find not all human like that.
He experienced many things, and grows up.

This story was a litte long story for me.
But once I start to read this book, I could read at all quickly.
Some scines are very terrible, but maybe you can be enjoy if you read at all. ( )

There are many dogs in this story.Human force the dogs to do something to get golds. They treat these dogs cluely. In the dogs,especially Buck became smarter and smarter because he leaned how to live in the wild.
This book made me excited, for instance, a view of fighting dogs is thrilling! It's easy to imagine the world in this story. ( )

When men find gold in the frozen north of Canada, they need dogs - big, strong dogs to pull the sledges on the long journeys to and from the gold mines. Buck is stolen from his home in the south and sold as a sledge-dog. He has to learn a new way of life - how to work in harness, how to stay alive in the ice and the snow ...and how to fight. Because when a dog falls down in a fight, he never gets up again.
