The Call of the Wild By Jack London
eBook (ePub): $1.55
Published in 1903 by MacMillan, The Call of the Wild is Jack London's most famous and most popular novel. Told from the perspective of Buck, at the start of the novel a domesticated St Bernard/... More > German Shepherd breed, the plot follows the dog from being snatched from a ranch in California to Alaska where he becomes part of a dog sled team. Through Buck, London examines the good and the bad of the Klondike, harsh men and the naïve, and in John Thornton, a man true and devoted to his wards, of which Buck becomes one. The writing is at times pure poetry that is linked to science and the natural world. Yet the prose can also be brutal and uncomfortable, in many respects, exactly what might be expected in a setting that repays no thought for fairness or morality. This is a book that deserves its place amongst the best of American literature.< Less
Harvest of a Quiet Eye By Craig Stevaux

As if in some kind of karmic joke, newly assigned Peace Corps volunteer and Vietnam War opponent, Malcolm Jossogne, arrives in Udon, Thailand in 1970 to find this once quiet, upcountry town has been... More > transformed into a vulgar shantytown of massage parlors, strip joints, bowling alleys, and neon-lit nights by the presence of thousands of American soldiers. Streets that once carried bicycles are now choked with caravans of honking blue taxis only American soldiers can afford. Bars and brothels outnumber Buddhist temples. Where saffron-robed Theravada monks once padded in silent contemplation, Led Zeppelin and Three Dog Night now blast from the doorways of GI bars, and drunken Americans on all fours vomit into the gutters. Grotesque imitation of American fashion, customs, and vices induces a cultural schizophrenia. Nearer to Hanoi than Bangkok, Udon is strategic to the U.S. military as it prosecutes the war. But it’s also here that Malcolm is to meet a Thai girl, “the other half of his flesh.”< Less
