As a study of a particular kind of early constructed masculinity via metaphor, this book is invaluable. I say book because Call and Fang form a sort of single narrative--the movement from civilization to "the wild" and the movement back (though not by the same dog). The last 10 pages of Call are genius that surpasses the rest of the book, and the first third of Fang is really quite good (the first two chapters alone would make a pretty incredible supernatural horror movie). I don't have to recommend these books because everyone reads them at some point, but I would say if you haven't gotten around to it yet, get to them sooner rather than later. ( )

The Call of the Wild and White Fang were the most gripping out of all of these stories. If you never paid attention to the plight of wolves before, you will after reading these stories. ( )
