The Call of the Wild

He walked to the cen­tre of the open space and lis­tened. It was the call, the many-noted call, sound­ing more lur­ingly and com­pellingly than ever be­fore. And as never be­fore, he was ready to obey. John Thorn­ton was dead. The last tie was bro­ken. Man and the claims of man no longer bound him.

They had died so eas­ily. It was harder to kill a husky dog than them. They were no match at all, were it not for their ar­rows and spears and clubs.

Mercy did not ex­ist in the pri­mor­dial life. It was mis­un­der­stood for fear, and such mis­un­der­stand­ings made for death. Kill or be killed, eat or be eaten, was the law; and this man­date, down out of the depths of Time, he obeyed.

There is an ec­stasy that marks the sum­mit of life, and be­yond which life can­not rise. And such is the para­dox of liv­ing, this ec­stasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a com­plete for­get­ful­ness that one is alive.

He was beaten (he knew that); but he was not bro­ken. He saw, once for all, that he stood no chance against a man with a club. He had learned the les­son, and in all his af­ter life he never for­got it. That club was a rev­e­la­tion. It was his in­tro­duc­tion to the reign of prim­i­tive law, and he met the in­tro­duc­tion half­way. The facts of life took on a fiercer as­pect; and while he faced that as­pect un­cowed, he faced it with all the la­tent cun­ning of his na­ture aroused.
