Meet the Author

When Wilson Rawls was a child, his mother ordered books through the mail, read them to Rawls and his siblings, and then let them take turns reading the books on their own. One of those books was The Call of the Wild, by Jack London. When Rawls's mother gave him that book, it became the first book he owned, and he cherished it. It also gave him the idea that he would become a writer like Jack London someday.
