The Call of the Wild Analysis

The Call of the Wild takes place at a time when wolves are seen with some changes in their hair. The history of a strong, imagined dog, from which the traps are broken and the animals are being stolen are told. When they are stuck in the ice when they are sledding in the poles, they must run around the fire as their hair was about to burn to avoid dying, or they have no choice but to wait for their frosting to discharge all the blood. It is the only way of survival for dogs in the face of a tame dog being more hateful than a wolf. The biggest witness to this is Buck.

While reading the book with a background in the search for gold, it goes from mastery to slavery; you will take a journey with a sociological side. Each time, you will not believe that the most lethal side of this bloody journey and cold is human ambitions with scenes full of human cruelty and ambition.
