This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Jack London’s immortal adventure stories The Call of the Wild and White Fang includes more than 30 illustrations from the original editions of both novels by Philip R. Goodwin, Charles Livingston Bull, and Frank E. Schoonover; London’s 1908 essay, “The Other Animals,” his response to Teddy Roosevelt’s accusation of being a “nature-faker”; and a helpful introduction, author bio, and bibliography.

Based in large part upon Jack London’s own experiences as a prospector during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1893, The Call of the Wild traces the untaming of Buck, a St. Bernard–Scotch shepherd mix taken from his comfortable home in the Santa Clara Valley to the frozen wilds of the Yukon. Published in 1903, the book vaulted London to international fame. Three years later, he wrote White Fang, the story of a wolf-dog who undergoes the opposite journey from the northern wilderness to civilization and domestication. Both books would become synonymous with the author and have rightly remained beloved classics for over a century.
