Eerie music sets the scene of the Alaskan wilderness. Hagon's rendition of London's anthropomorphic story of a wolf/dog is geared toward a younger audience. His voice contains that sense of intimacy and emphasis that characterizes the act of reading to the young. The reading is smooth and clear although there are times when regional accents (some overdone) get a little mixed up. The abridgment makes a good introduction to the author, and the well-chosen musical interludes throughout don't interfere with the story. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 97]
