Jack London captures readers with vivid scenery, the complexity of feelings, and foreshowing in this harrowing tale of a mixed-breed dog named Buck who begins his journey in Southern California and through various circumstances finds himself in Alaska, the victim of the Klondike Gold Rush’s need for strong dogs to carry sleds across the frozen Klondike. Buck's journey from a life of domestication to a life that hearkens back to the primordial days of his breed is interwoven with brutality, perseverance, survival, affection, and devotion. During the journey, he encounters men who draw out the qualities that make Buck a legend, and allow him to answer the sounding of the call that liberates him from the dominion of man to run free with his wild brothers.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
