HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `Fear urged him to go back, but growth drove him on...` Set in the frozen forests of the Yukon Territory, Canada, during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s, `White Fang' tells the story of a young wolf-dog's journey from the wild into human territory. As White Fang learns that civilisation is every bit as vicious and violent as nature - and that survival is only awarded to the fittest - we too see how instinct, sensation and emotion drive every one of us. Published in 1906 to wide and instant acclaim, this is a remarkable and moving look at the timeless relationship between man and dog.

With an Introduction and Notes by Lionel Kelly, University of Reading. The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906) are world famous animal stories. Set in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s, The Call of the Wild is about Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a St Bernard and a Scottish Collie. Stolen from his pampered life on a Californian estate and shipped to the Klondike to work as a sledge dog, he triumphs over his circumstances and becomes the leader of a wolf pack. The story records the 'decivilisation' of Buck as he answers 'the call of the wild', an inherent memory of primeval origins to which he instinctively responds. In contrast, White Fang relates the tale of a wolf born and bred in the wild which is civilised by the master he comes to trust and love. The brutal world of the Klondike miners and their dogs is brilliantly evoked and Jack London's rendering of the sentient life of Buck and White Fang as they confront their destiny is enthralling and convincing. The deeper resonance of these stories derives from the author's use of the myth of the hero who survives by strength and courage, a powerful myth that still appeals to our collective unconscious.

The Sea-Wolf (Paperback): Jack London The Sea-Wolf (Paperback)
Jack London; Series edited by Keith Carabine; Introduction by Lionel Kelly; Notes by Lionel Kelly
R65 R54 Discovery Miles 540 Save R11 (17%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Sea-Wolf belongs in the honorific tradition of American sea fiction where the voyage motif became a means of exploring the meaning of life, as in Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast (1840), Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym (1838), and Herman Melville's Moby Dick (1851). The dominant subject is an intellectual conflict between a ship-wrecked literary figure, Humphrey Van Weyden, and the brutal captain of a seal-hunting schooner, Wolf Larsen, who rescues Van Weyden and puts him to menial work on the schooner. The central chapters focus on the gory details of seal-hunting, and the final section shows how far Van Weyden has learned seamanship as he restores The Ghost to sailing health and returns to port with the only woman passenger, another shipwrecked figure, to plight their troth.

In Jack London's lifetime, Burning Daylight was one of his best-selling books, yet it has been largely out of print for decades. Now the novel is being brought back for a new generation of readers to discover. The story features one of London's most engaging larger-than-life protagonists, Elam Harnish, a prospector with John Henry-like strength and a thirst for gold-plated wealth. Harnish, the "Burning Daylight" of the title, eventually strikes it rich through his talent in the mines--and at the poker table. But he ultimately makes the biggest gamble of his life when he decides to trade it all for the golden-haired love of his life. While the novel moves from Alaska to the Sonoma Valley and later into the wilds of Wall Street, it's the vivid descriptions of the Gold Rush-era Klondike that shine. London takes readers on journeys deep into mines and across the frozen North via sled dog. He captures the competitive spirit of the time and the endless hope that the big score is just one dig away. London weaves in progressive views on sustainability and land use, and also timeless lessons about the real riches in life. This new edition presents London's text in full and features a new afterword from University of Alaska Fairbanks professor Eric Heyne. Heyne situates the novel within London's life and writings and looks at some of the sources that may have inspired him. The re-emergence of Burning Daylight will allow London's fans to fill in an important spot on their bookshelf and rediscover a long-lost work.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `Deep in the forest a call was sounding, and . . . he felt compelled to turn his back upon the fire, and to plunge into the forest.' Half St. Bernard, half sheepdog, Buck is stolen away from his comfortable life as a pet in California and sold to dog traders. He soon finds himself aboard a ship, on its way to Northern Canada. Surrounded by cruelty, Buck's natural instincts and behaviour begin to emerge as he works as a mail carrying sled dog, scavenging for food, protecting himself against other dogs and sleeping out in the cold snow. Sold to a group of American gold hunters who are inexperienced living in the wilderness, the dogs are treated badly and as misfortune besets them, Buck is saved by John Thornton. Indebted to his new master, Buck remains by Thornton's side, saving him from drowning and protecting him with fierce loyalty throughout their time together. However, Buck can not deny the strong lure of the wilderness around him. Exciting and action-packed, Call of the Wild explores the timeless relationship between man and dog, and the inevitable draw of primitive instincts that pull Buck away from civilization and humanity towards the lawless and harsh wilderness.
