Description

Release Special Price

White Fang is the title of a novel by United States author Jack

London. The novel was first serialized in The Outing Magazine in May

to October 1906. It is the story of a wild wolfdog's journey toward

becoming civilized in Yukon Territory, Canada, during the Klondike

Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. White Fang is a companion

novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of

the Wild, which concerns a kidnapped civilized dog turning into a wild

animal.

Much of the novel is written from the view-point of animals, allowing

London to explore how animals view their world and how they view

humans. White Fang examines (sometimes graphically) the violent world

of wild animals and the equally violent world of supposedly-civilized

humans. The book also explores complex themes including morality and

redemption. White Fang has been adapted into a movie numerous times, including in 1991.

Plot Summary

The story begins before the three-quarters wolf-dog hybrid is born,

with two men and their sled dog team. The men, Bill and Henry, are

stalked by a large pack of starving wolves over a course of several

days. Finally, four more teams find Henry, after all his dogs have

been eaten and Bill has been killed, in a ring of coals from his fire

in an attempt to keep the wolves away. The story then follows the

pack, who have been robbed of their last prey. When the pack finally

manages to bring down a moose, the famine is ended; they eventually

split up, and the story now follows a she-wolf and her mate, One

Eye. The she-wolf gives birth to a litter of five cubs by the

Mackenzie River, and all but one die from hunger. One Eye leaves the

she-wolf because he is killed by a lynx while trying to rob it's den

for food for the she-wolf and her cub. And the surviving cub and the

she-wolf are left to fend for themselves. The she-wolf later discovers

his remains near the lynx den.

The cub comes across five Native Americans one day, and the she-wolf

comes to his rescue. One man, Grey Beaver, recognizes the she-wolf as

Kiche, his brother's wolfdog, who left during a famine. Grey Beaver's

brother is dead, so he takes Kiche and her cub, christening the cub

White Fang. White Fang has a harsh life in the Indian camp. The

current puppy pack, seeing him as a wolf, immediately attack him. He

is saved by the Indians, but the pups never accept him, and the leader

Lip-lip marks him out for special persecution. White Fang grows up

becoming more savage, morose, solitary, and a deadly fighter, "the

enemy of his kind."
