The Call of the Wild is a novel by American writer Jack London. The plot concerns a previously domesticated dog named Buck, whose primordial instincts return after a series of events leads to his serving as a sled dog in the Yukon during the 19th-century Klondike Gold Rush, in which sled dogs were bought at generous prices. Published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is London's most-read book, and it is generally considered his best, the masterpiece of his so-called "early period." Because the protagonist is a dog, it is sometimes classified as a juvenile novel, suitable for children, but it is dark in tone and contains numerous scenes of cruelty and violence. The Yeehat, a group of Alaska Natives portrayed in The Call of the Wild, are a figment of London's imagination.

《野性的呼唤》讲述了一只名叫巴克的狗的故事。巴克经过文明的教化,一直生活在美国加州一个温暖的山谷里,后被卖到北部寒冷偏远、盛产黄金的阿拉斯加,成了一只拉雪橇的狗。它目睹了人与人、狗与狗、强者与弱者之间的冷酷无情和生死争斗,于是为了生存,它学会了只求活命、不顾道义的处世原则,变得凶悍、机智而狡诈。最后,在森林中狼群的呼唤下,巴克狼性复萌,逃入丛林,重归荒野。在小说中,作者将充满冒险和野性的淘金生活以及在这种特殊环境中"优胜劣汰、适者生存"的客观现实表现得淋漓尽致。
