A Review of The Wild

Jack London is a master of adventure in text, perhaps in large part because his own life was filled with exciting forays into the wild.  

In this new series, Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon combine some of the historical record of London's life with the mythologies of the lands he explored.  From the realities of trekking through the wilderness in search of gold and trying to avoid starvation and frostbite, to the super-realities of fighting off enchanted creatures, The Wild is a non-stop wild ride through the Klondike.  Guys in 7th and 8th grade will particularly like this adrenaline rush built on vivid characters and historical events.
