Call of the Wild by Vern Thiessen
Vern Thiessen's theatrical adaptation of Jack London's classic novel.
Buck is a dog who is kidnapped from his life in sunny California life and sold as a sled dog for the gold rush in the north. As Buck learns to survive in this new and brutal world, he is transformed from a spoiled pet into a legendary leader of a wolf pack. Told entirely from the dog's POV, this is a unique take on a classic tale.
