Jack London was one of the first fiction writers to achieve worldwide fame. Though he is best remembered for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike Gold Rush, his short stories are considered masterful. Here in "Brown Wolf," a couple living on a homestead in Northern California who take in a stray sled dog from Alaska. A story about the relationship between man and animal, "Brown Wolf" is among London's finest shorter works.
