Hey, CR,

I'm sure your sister understands your greedy reading habits.

The Call of the Wild is a good book. White Fang, in my opinion, is better. Crazy good. What I remember most about it was the way London wrote from the animal's point of view. I read both books along with my son and will always have fond memories. I will have to read the biography myself to determine when said son might be ready for it. I think White Fang should be read by boys and girls.

Speaking of sailing and the doldrums (yes, you did), we have been reading Dove, the story of Robin Lee Graham, youngest person ever to sail the world solo (at least at the time). Old book, but talk about packing a lifetime of living into 5 years. Amazing stuff!
