Jack London’s classic tale of the heroic dog Buck captures a bygone era in American history. Sold as a sled dog during the Alaskan Gold Rush, Buck finds himself in an adventure that reconnects him to nature and his wild roots. Actor Jeff Daniels leads the listener through Buck’s journey with a friendly and familiar voice. London’s prose is not overly dramatic, and Daniels does not try to make it so. His reading style is somewhat removed, but he engages the listener through his steadiness of tone and pace. While there’s little dialogue in the story, when it appears, Daniels captures the essence of the characters. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this cherished story and thoughtful narration.
