In the novel, The Call of the Wild, we are introduced to a dog named Buck. His entire life changed when he ended up in the Alaska wilderness, and was soon introduced to a new way of life. When this excerpt takes place, Buck has been "fastened with a harness" to "an arrangement of straps and buckles" so he could be trained to pull a dog sled. Buck had never pulled a dog sled before, yet he wisely chose to become a quick learner. Several factors lead to Buck 's success.
Joan D. Hedrick declares that domestication serves as a barrier, separating Buck, the main character, from his true nature in Jack London’s The Call of the Wild.

It begins with the king-like dog’s removal from the comfort of his estate when gold is discovered in the Klondike region. Hedrick summarizes Buck’s kidnapping and the emotions that he experiences due to abuse and mistreatment.
.Brian ’s winter by: Gary Paulsen and call of the wild by: Jack London. There are three traits that both Brian and buck have here they are.
Pain comes in different ways and in different scenarios for each person and even pets, but with perseverance we can get through these painful times in our life. In the book The Call of the Wild, Buck, the main character gets shipped from owner to owner, coming out of each owners care, not in the best state of health. Often times he returns beaten and starved, but with perseverance he keeps on running and eats back to health. Much like Buck, my mom persevered. While just starting her adulthood she had a major brain surgery, which caused a lot of severe pain.
Buck’s great genes and extensive training have allowed him to become more agile than any foe he is pitted against. So when Jack London is talking about Buck fighting a pack of wolves he say “he was everywhere at once” meaning that buck is so quick to strike that there is nowhere that the wolves aren’t vulnerable. The inclusion of this hyperbole gives us a sense of how Buck has evolved from a simple house dog to a wild killer of great strength.
Jonathan Auerbach parallels the significance of buck carrying “urgent” mail and trying to ‘get the word’ out to London’s struggle to gain recognition as a writer. Auerbach then briefly lists some of his other published works. The conclusion of the correlation between publishing writing and Buck’s effort to make a name for himself in the wild can be drawn. The novel follows the concept of hard work will lead to freedom and self- transformation. Buck is able to make a name for himself in civilization due to the work that he executes.
Buck, from the book Call of the Wild, is intelligent and adaptable. Intelligence can be defined as the skill to gain and apply knowledge to real-life situations. An example is when Curly died. When Curly got knocked down, that gave the other dogs the chance to kill her. From Curly’s death, Buck understood once you are knocked down in a fight, you are dead(p.15).
While growing up perseverance helps you overcome things. In the Call of the Wild, Buck was taken from his home, and forced to learn a whole new way of life. In contrast to Buck, my mom like most teens had to get out of a relationship which called for perseverance. While Buck and my mom had to overcome different things, they both experienced perseverance. Everyone even animals have to persevere in life and it takes faith and traits to get through the tough times.
Have you ever heard about role models? If you have, then you would know that each one has to undertake some sort of mission to become what many people call a “role model.” The first role model’s name is Ernesto. The second person 's name is Farah Ahmedi. Finally, the third person is not a person.
Throughout The Call of the Wild, many different types of relationships were formed. Sometimes they were loving, they were also sometimes harsh, in some cases they were even only good for one member of the relationship. Jack London does a great job of demonstrating multiple types of relationships with many different people. In the book, Buck 's first relationship is a loving one with a judge and his family.
