Jack London Scholar and author Dan Dyer (Answering the Call of the Wild)

Jack London's life resonates through The Call of the Wild. Virtually every place he mentions in the novel is a place he knew. Dan spent a number of years visiting and photographing all of those sites, and he will show you everything from College Park station (where Buck was put aboard a train the night he was stolen) to Dawson City, Yukon, where Buck won a wager about how much he could pull.
