The title is a metaphor; the wild is calling Buck from domesticity

"Among the terriers he stalked imperiously, and Toots and Ysabel he utterly ignored, for he was king."

"His eyes turned bloodshot, and he was metamorphosed into a raging fiend."


"Buck's first day on the Dyea beach was LIKE a nightmare."

"Mercedes] attacked the belongings of her men and went through them like

a tornado."
