: Please do let me know where this phrase "The call of the wild " is used with a few examples at the earliest.

"The Call of the Wild" is a novel by Jack London and is available online at www.literature.org/


Its hero is Buck, a sled dog. Here "call" is understood to mean summoning or urging, and "the wild" has the sense of outdoor nature, the primitive, the realm of instinct.
