In the novel The Call of the Wild Jack London describes living through the Yukon Gold Rush through the eyes of a dog, Buck. Throughout the novel Buck went from being the “king of his domain” to being “beaten but not broken”, back to being a real leader and proving he can make it through everything that was thrown into his path. Buck experiences much change in the story, which changes the character that he is and the way he is trekking through life in the Yukon Gold Rush.
Initially in the story, Buck had it easy. He was born a domesticated St. Bernard/Scotch shepherd who lived with Judge Miller in the “sun kissed Santa Clara
Call of the wild was a very good book. I like how the book described how Buck had changed over the course of the book. I don’t like how Buck always was getting beat in the story. I also like how Buck took lead of the pack when he killed Spitz. It was sad when John Thornton died at the end.

Buck is cared for and respected by Judge Miller however Judge does not love Buck. In chapter 6 it states ‘’and with the Judge himself a stately and dignified friendship. ’This shows that Judge respects and is friends with but does not love Buck.

The call of the wild is about a dog named buck hat goes through many owners and then goes to the wild and joins a wolf pack. The central idea in The Call of The Wild is the way you treat animals can tell about you and your personality.
“Your circle of influence dictates your path.” -John Bielecki. Influence others have can guide your life. In the book “Call of the Wild”, Jack London uses the influence of masters. Buck is a pampered prince in Santa Clara Valley, in Judge Miller’s house. One day, he is kidnapped and sold to be a sled dog. Buck met several masters, the man in the red sweater, Francois and Perrault, and John Thornton. All of them played a great role for Buck’s rapid growth. Under the harsh environment of toiling, Buck gradually grew into an undefeatable, wild beast. Among his masters, Buck felt passionate love for him and Thornton.

Perseverance is an immense trait that rules all if one contains it. Never giving up, pushing through, that is what it means, and that’s what it takes. Perseverance can be mastered by anyone, you have to fight and never back down to succeed. Raise the bar, and push past others. Both Buck and Leighton persevered by succeeding in the face of adversity and giving it everything they had.
A major theme in Jack London’s classic book The Call of the Wild is that adaptability is essential for survival, which is what buck has to do to during most of the book. At the beginning of the book, Buck’s appearance changes, In the middle, his mental thinking changes, and At the end, his senses change so he can adapt to his new life in Alaska.
I believe that it was very biased and cruel when Buck was taken away and sold. He was basically kidnapped and taken to be a sled dog. I also think that he was a quick learner and I am not sure if he likes it there. An example of his quick learning skills is when he had to bury himself in the snow so he wouldn’t be cold at night, which he observed from the other dogs. The best place for Buck, though, would be back home. That is where he belongs even though he does do a good job as a sled dog, he doesn’t deserve to be out in the cold. When he was a house dog, he was a king and he enjoyed it. He also had a nice time doing whatever he pleased there. He was very much loved, happy, and healthy. Buck was also well behaved and loyal to his owners.
I think Buck is better off as a sled dog. His owner wanted a dog that has strong muscles. So basically he is meant or for strong weather conditions. If he is at home all day living in luxury all he will do is become spoiled and rely on his owner for everything. Sometimes dogs raised in isolation are not the most functional. If he lived as a house dog and he went out into the world be lost. His senses would not come in because everything would be done for him.
The feelings shared between them were often based on inexplicable natural impulses, characteristic of the relationship between man and beast. "He went wild with happiness when Thornton touched him or spoke to him....the strength of Buck's gaze would draw John Thornton's head around, and he would return the gaze, without speech, his heart shining out of his eyes as Buck's heart shone out" (London 75). The connection that the two share is very important in Buck's transformation because it is the last thing he must surrender to complete his transformation and answer the call of the wild.
In The Call of the Wild, one theme could be that only the strongest survive, Buck goes through significant changes in his life and has to learn very quickly how to adapt in order to survive. The connection between this theme and natural selection is that if you are not able to adapt or suited for a certain task, you will fail. If Buck had not adapted and learned how to a sled dog, he would have most likely of died. When it says "only the strongest survive" it means that if you are not prepared or are weak, you will die first. In natural selection, when disasters happen or things in the world change, only the strongest, smartest, and quickest to adapt will survive. Bucks life changed very rapidly, but he was able to adapt very quickly to his
