This book was so good and it made me so frustrated with humans(like if i didn’t hate already humankind). London is terrific describing the nature and how a dog reacts; the writing rocks in this book. This book is a classic for a reason

London has a gift for writing from the perspective of animals, almost a spiritual predecessor for Michael Morpurgo. It's a short piece, easy to read in a single sitting. Touching with beautiful descriptions of a world lost to time now.
