Trisha decided she is going to go on a five-day dog sledding trip in Northern Minnesota in February. This is the same badass woman who went for a cattle drive some years ago: description here. I have opted out of both adventures. Exposure to large domestic animals being controlled by the minds of humans in wilderness situations are not on my list of things I need to do before I die. The inverse is more true. So she is going with another female badass friend. I am proud of them both.
But I insisted that she read The Call of the Wild first. There is no way I will let her go on a dog sledding adventure without having read that book first. I threatened to chain her to the steel railing in our house until the read the book.
Heeding my threat, she just downloaded it onto her Kindle.
There is a Call of the Wild in our house.

Best of Luck! I think that she will be fine..
She should also read ‘Winterdance’ by Gary Paulsen.
Trying to figure out what “the inverse” would be. Exposure to small wild animals in urban situations?
Cracked me up.
