Commonly considered to be Jack London's tour de force, The Call of the Wild tells the story of Buck, a domesticated dog ripped from a comfortable life when he is stolen from his home on a California ranch. Sold to a pair of men in Canada, Buck is trained as a sled dog in cold wilderness of the Klondike region. However, Buck's ordeal has only begun, as he is forced to learn how to overcome both in the brutal conditions and as the primal social facets as a member of a dog sled pack.

I read this book years ago. Even though I had read it, it was as though it was new to me.
I enjoyed the story, because it was so natural and realistic. The narrator was excellent, too. I think this should be required reading for anyone who's interested in life, animals and humanity.
I have never been a big fan of listening to books as I've always preferred to read them. During a solo, 7 hour road trip for work recently , I decided to listen to Matthew narrate my favorite book. The 500 miles from my office to our client's flew by considering I never stopped nor even considered stopping as the narrative was stellar.
