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.

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!
This is a story of survival, trust, mistreatment, love, cruelty and kindness. With a range of emotions the author delved into the animal world and has given White Fang a strong personality with animal instincts. From the time he was born till many years later when he became tamed White Fang experienced domination, terror and love under the hands of three humans who shaped and molded him.
The descriptions are fascinating and very graphic. Some may say it is also quite rough. We are exposed to a lot of cruelty: sharp teeth that bites and bring pain and death, blood pouring out of throats of victims, beatings… etc. All said in the unique narrative of a wolf-dog. I never though this saga dragged, from page one I was captured by White Fang’s struggles through life and rooted for him till the very last page. This story is full of suspense and intrigues and most of all extremely gripping.
I loved this adventure in the wild. Jack London was a master in telling stories I am not surprised that his collection is still cherished and will be for a long time to come.
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.Read more ›
