  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews - Audio And Video Online Reviews 1991-2018
    Originally published in 1903, London's tale of Buck, a dog in the days of the Yukon gold rush, receives a fresh treatment through Daniels' rigorous narration. Buck is one of the most enduring characters in literature, and listeners will thrill anew to his journey from pampered pet to primal creature. Stolen from his home in California and forced into serving a succession of masters as an Alaskan sled dog before answering his true "call" as leader of a wolf pack, Buck's adventures are powerful, palpable, and immediate for both seasoned and reluctant listeners. Daniels sets an exciting pace and never wavers; his rich, deep tones exude a masculine edge that seems just right. Package cover art by Caldecott-winning artist Jerry Pinkney is especially attractive and eye-catching. Those familiar with the classic story will discover a fresh enjoyment, and new listeners will be equally pleased with this audio. Grades 6-10. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
