Between these opposing values Buck hovers continually in the action of the tale.

In the second chapter, when Buck learns “The Law of Club and Fang” he builds his first warm sleeping nest in the snow, to discover the next morning: It had snowed during the night and he was completely buried.
“The worst part of getting close to someone is the part when you have to miss them”-Yasmin Mogahed. In the book Never Cry Wolf (1963) by Farley Mowat, Mowat gets very attached to the wolves, and uses a lot of emotion when he has to go study wolves for the government in North Canada to find out if they are killing the caradou. When he first starts his experiment he couldn’t find a trace of any wolves, but as soon as he does he gets attached to them and gives them names. He seems to think that the wolves are now a part of him and he knows that he has to leave them soon. His experiment teaches him so much and he gains new friends or “pack members”.
Enkidu “must die in shame” and not a “man who falls in battle” when he lives in the human world (Gilgamesh 28). Enkidu is better staying in the forest among the animals because he is stronger and at peace with the animals, even though he becomes more intelligent and civilized when he joins the human world. The human world is far more educated and civilized than living among the animals. All you really have to do among animals is find food and know how to run fast.
“In our backyard, a boy keeps his dog,chained up, a ball of fluff shackled since he was a puppy” (Solzhenitsyn). “One cold and snowy winter the wolf couldn't find enough to eat. She was almost dead with hunger when a house dog happened by” (Aesop). Solzhenitsyn sets the story out with a dog chained up and helpless while Aesop makes the wolf starved but free. Solzhenitsyn looks at Aesop's traditional writing for an idea of a character, but makes the details about the character different by adding a modern twist.
The call of the wild is how Buck the main character in the book is moved from santa clara to the klondike for his ancestrial genes of how great they lead dogsledding packs, and throughout the book Buck overcomes many different obstacles to be te best of the best.

Crispin is a young boy who carries his mother’s “Cross of Lead” everywhere. He is used to not looking people in the eyes because they have always acted superior to him. When he meets Bear after he has been declared a “wolf’s head” he goes traveling with Bear. Bear teaches him how to act like he belong and that he is used to everything that can be thrown at him, just like a jester should be able to. When Bear takes him to a big city and Bear gets captured, Crispin saves Bear with his power as the son of the deceased lord.
The only two point of views in the story belong to both of these characters and their shared experience differs through the narrative and through instinct. The dog is introduced with instinct just as much as the man is introduced with arrogance, “its instinct told it a truer tale than was told to the man by the man 's judgment” (London 630) and it is through this instinct the dog ends the story alive. The dog’s instincts work to characterize nature as indifferent in just how instincts develop and work. It was through the dog’s ancestor’s ancient and long-lasting struggle that it was given an advantage. Given being the keyword, as all the dog did was follow passed down genetic information and acted upon it, such as when it fell into the ice and bit off the forming ice on its paws, “it did not know this.

I think buck was better being a sled dog. Buck learned new things and, buck also learning to be the lead pack. Buck never really had it easy as a house dog. His owner sold him because of his gamble problem. Buck stuck up for his pack and should be the leader.
These reviews I have seen are mostly positive. One of the reviews says it should be read and loved by everyone.(Jack London’s Naturalism) The review says this because the story shows a odd but lovable hero that in the end if he believes and tries his best in the end he can achieve his goals and live the life he would want to live. Another review says that it is really good but is not for young animal lovers.(Call of the Wild- Book Review) It says this because in the story the hero has to do some bad things like rip out other dogs or even humans jugulars to save himself or some of his new found friends, but in the end the review still says it is a really good book.

Buck learned that the man in the red sweater’s club shows that Buck must obey to the him.
