1 st body paragraph

1st Body Paragraph

As Buck learned life is ever-changing. From a comfortable California home to the harsh wilds of Alaska, Buck traveled through an ever changing landscape that brought him a fast changing way of life. This change was most evident when in first stepped out into the cold, cruel climate of the Northland after living in the warmth of the California sun. Buck also had a seemingly endless change of masters who ruled over him. From the professional postal carriers, to the good natured Scotsman, to the incompetent Hal and Charles and ending with the loving John Thornton, Buck had to submit to this constant parade of men who held control over him. In addition, life brought Buck an incredible variety of companions, some friendly, some cruel and some indifferent. Curly, the first dog Buck encountered died quickly from the harsh life while Spitz brought Buck to the brink of his own death. Continually throughout the story Buck encountered change and these changes demanded adjustments.

2nd body paragraph

2nd Body Paragraph

In order to survive Buck had to adjust to all the changes he faced. The challenges of being a sled dog were all new to buck. He had to learn the rules of trail and trace. The skills required to pull a sled in coordination with all the other dogs while enduring long days and the harsh elements demanded that Buck constantly stay alert and learn. The relentless climate posed an incredible obstacle to the spoiled buck. When refused entrance into the master’s tent, buck learned early how to survive the long, freezing nights by building a snow cave. Food was most important for maintaining energy and strength in the cold, and buck realized he needed to eat fast and fight for what he wanted. Even as a seasoned sled dog, buck continued to adjust when he encountered the wolves and the life he dreamed of. Never was this adjustment more evident than when he slew a moose. All the adjustments Buck made to his life in the North still did not qualify him for leadership.

Buck has to learn that life changes, he must adjust to changes, and that leadership demands special qualities.


3rd body paragraph

3rd Body Paragraph

It was control that Buck sought, and only a few have the qualities it takes to lead. The desire to lead is an inner force that only a few possess. Spitz certainly had it while Sol-leks was content to work hard and follow those in command. Buck had that inner need as perrault notice when he said he was one in a thousand. Leadership demands a great deal of courage. To command others means one has to stand above all and assert power when necessary. Buck ultimately showed the courage it takes in not only defeating Spitz, but demanding his rightful place as leader when Perrault wanted to give control to Sol-leks. Leadership does not come easily, and those who seek it must be cunning. Buck learned early not only how to steal food, but he also cleverly undermined Spitz’s authority by siding with the dogs Spitz was trying to discipline. Some say a leader is born and not made, Buck was a born leader who had to make himself into the leader of sled dogs and wolves.


Concluding paragraph

Concluding Paragraph

Like the introductory paragraph, the concluding paragraph will be developed in the revised draft. All we need is a restatement of the thesis statement.

The Call of the Wild taught me that life changes, we must adjust to changes, and that leadership demands special qualities.
