Book Club selection of the month

"Call of the Wild"

By Jack London

If you love to read - Book Club is the right fit for you.
New readers are always welcome!

Thursday, February 18th @ 11:30 a.m.

Buck, a physically impressive dog, is living the good life in California when he gets stolen and put into dog slavery. For him, this means pulling a ridiculously heavy sled through miles and miles of frozen ice with little or nothing to eat and frequent beatings. As the definition of a domestic dog, Buck is out of his element until he begins to adapt to his surroundings, and learn from the other dogs. Fortunately, Buck is saved by a kind man named John Thornton and he becomes attached to Thornton, saving his life several times. Buck sets off on a journey with his new master and several other men but fights with temptation: stay with Thornton, or kill things? Be civilized, or be wild?
