    "Wonderfully done classic"

    The narration by Dufris make the story leap off the page (or out of the headphones, more correctly) directly into your very presence. This is a great listen for vacation. The whole family will thrill at Buck's adventures. This is a classic very well done.

    Story
    "Ten year old son loved this book"

    My ten year old son loved this audiobook. We started listening to it together in the car, but he finished it on his own because he did not want to wait for another car trip. The narrator did a good job expressing the character's sounds and emotions.
