My favorites characters from the heart breaking novel The Call of the Wild are John Thortan and Buck. John is a strong scruffy haired harsh dog sledder; Buck is a strong, courageous ,and brilliant dog. Buck is on John’s dog sled team when a icy cliff falls away from underneath them. John is luckily saved by Buck and John’s brother Hal. From that special moment on, John realizes that Buck is something special. The first thing you would notice about Buck is that he is a very tough worker. My favorite part in the book is when Buck pulls a thousand pounds of flour a hundred yards when it is sixty below zero; on top of that, he wins John two thousand sand dollars. These characters are extremely memorable!
