Product Description

Review

"One hundred and one years after its publication, it is still enthralling. The opening chapters are haunting, their depiction of the wilderness of snow, ice and forest faced by gold prospectors exquisite and terrifying. The menace of ever-present death, for man, dog and wolf alike, in a setting of remorseless beauty, is bracing and humbling" Herald "Raw narratives of visceral appeal whose cinematic energy cry out for film adaptation" -- Robert McCrum Observer "A searing book about man and animals and the inherent wildness in the nature of the dog. It's a very stark book in some ways but it really conjures up the atmosphere of Gold Rush-era Yukon" Daily Express

About the Author

Jack London (born John Griffith Chaney, 1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist, whose stories and novels set in Alaska and the South Pacific earned him worldwide fame. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This was a great book I would recommend this book for dog lovers and wolf lovers from all ages. It shows how White Fang grows up and is brought up in the world by his masters and the wild. As he struggles to determine good from evil, right from wrong it is a great adventure for White Fang and others.

This book is about a half-wolf half -dog called White Fang. This story starts out before he was born. When his father and his mother are in a starving wolf pack they are forced to eat dogs off of a sled team that was traveling to a town. Every night White Fangs mother would come into their camp and lure one of their sled dogs away from the camp. The pack would eat the dog, and they did this until there was no sled dogs left then, ate the two remaining unarmed men. One day White Fangs mother and One eye his father, leave the pack to hunt on there own. They then have puppies but there was not enough food to support them all, so all the puppies but one died. White Fang was the only survivor. Soon after his father dies in a fight with a lynx, White Fang and his mother have to live on their own. In this time White Fang learns about the wild, how to kill and get meat. Then one day a tribe of Indians discovers him and his mother. White Fang's new master was his mother's old master and White Fang is forced to live in the camp with his mother. There was no warm welcome for White Fang. The older puppies would always fight him and hurt him on purpose. They soon take away his mother and he receives sever beatings from his master. When he turns one, he is put on a sled team alone with other puppies and they journey from town to town trading fur and other goods. He is then later sold to a greedy pit dog owner Beauty Smith. White fang is then forced to fight as a pit dog, he has to kill or be killed.

The product I was looking for for my 15 yr old was the full book. Not the "Thrift Edition".
I guess i am responsible fro the purchase but the listing does not indicate the fact that you are getting a watered down version of the real deal.
this version is for those wanting to skip through and get only the exciting potions. Don't buy if you want the meat and potatoes version!

Can you imagine a book full of suspense? Well if you can there is a good chance that you're looking right at the title, White Fang. White Fang is a book about a part dog, part wolf named White Fang who is the last cub of the litter to survive. White Fang ends up with a group of First Nations people; He loses his mom, and travels to the Hudson Bay Company! That's not all, he is bought by a man who drools over money which White Fang is forced to fight for. Luckily he is saved. Will his soul ever be free of the vicious status he now possesses?

You can learn a lot from White Fang. Here are two examples, a key thing you can learn is that you have to be able to adapt to different situations. How I learned this is by White Fang who is an artic animal, moves all the way around the arctic and then ends up in San José. San José has very warm weather and he suffers but he has to get used to it. Another terrific thing you can learn from White Fang is that, you have to let things go. You can learn this from White Fang when he loses his mom and a year later he finds her and she has completely forgotten about him. It makes me love White Fang even more with these important things that you can learn.

A great thing about this book is that the characters are realistic. One example is that you can almost imagine this taking place in the year it happens. Another example is that Jack London describes the characters looks, thoughts and feelings so well that it is like you know the character personally. It also seems like Jack London did a lot of research because there are things in the book that you probably wouldn't know if you didn't research. All these details made the book seem even more realistic.
