Manuel (The Call of the Wild) Manuel is the gardener to Judge Miller, who starts the action by stealing and selling the dog, Buck, in Jack London’s most popular work, The Call of the Wild, published in 1903. But he really isn’t a bad guy – he just needs the money to pay his gambling-habit debts and feed his family, and he truly agonizes over it, regretting his part in betraying the trust of a fine animal. And, after all, Buck encounters a whole new life in the wild and finds his métier, transforming from a pampered doggie into a true son of wolves. For his sins, Manuel pays dearly, with imprisonment and heart rending remorse, and we’re on his side.
