The dog Buck lives a privileged life in the family of a California judge. But when gold is discovered in the Yukon Valley and thousands of men rush north, Buck is stolen from his home and sent north to pull sleds for the Canadian mail service. Buck finds he must learn fast or die, and the new law of life is primitive - the law of club and fang. London reveals the lengths to which men will go to satisfy the gold lust, and he explores the animal instinct of kill or be killed as Buck rises to leader of the pack.

The guide is well-developed. It is a bit deep for my middle school (6th grade) class but we make it work. I appreciate the Biblical integration we had a great discussion today about moral relativism vs absolutism.
I've only used one guide from Progeny Press so far, but I guarantee I will order more. They are very well written and thought provoking. My son seemed to enjoy doing them. They are time consuming, however, due to the detail. I love how there are extra projects if you choose to use them. I also love the ability to download them instantly for use.
So far it is working great for us.
