I'm feeling very stupid at the moment. I've read "The Call of the Wild", and
even read it within the last couple of years, but at the moment its
connection to "Tracking Song" entirely eludes me, even though "Tracking
Song" is one of my favourite Lupine tales. Far from being bored, I should be
deeply fascinated, Matthew, if you would expound upon the correspondences.

Please, I should really like to hear about this!
