A tidewater dog named Buck is stolen from his original owner and catapulted into an arena of bad men and dogs during the gold rush in northern Alaska. "Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was brewing", and thus begins the start of hardship, mistreatment, and the will to survive. Toughening, maddening, and overcoming are the hallmarks of this great classic. Don't miss it.
Three short stories - "My Old Man", "Up in Michigan", and "Out of Season" - are the first works ever published by Ernest Hemingway. Published in 1923 in Paris, they are the precursor of this famous author's literary masterpieces. Each story, distinctively different, demonstrates the versatility of his craftsmanship and the measure of his prodigious mind.
