Ten of the best wolves in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named a list of ten of the best wolves in literature.

One entry on the list:
The Call of the Wild, by Jack London London narrates the adventures of a dog called Buck, who ends up in Alaska as the companion of a good-hearted gold-panner. When his master is killed, Buck must learn to live in the woods among the local wolves. He discovers the wolf within himself and finally becomes the leader of the pack.
Read about another title on the list.

The Call of the Wild is one of Charlie English's top ten snow books and one of Thomas Bloor's top ten tales of metamorphosis.
