“White Fang knew the law well: to oppress the weak and obey the strong.”
A companion novel to Jack London's 'The Call of the Wild', 'White Fang' is the story of a wild dog's journey toward becoming civilized in the Canadian territory of Yukon at the end of the nineteenth century. 'White Fang' is characteristic of London's precise prose style and innovation use of voice and perspective. Much of the novel is written from the viewpoint of the animals, allowing London to explore how animals view their world and how they view humans.
White Fang relies on his instincts as well as his strength and courage to survive in the Yukon wilderness—despite both animal and human predators—and eventually comes to make his peace with man.
Jack London spent a year living in the Yukon and drew heavily upon his experiences there while writing the book. He later said, "It was in the Klondike that I found myself."
This enhanced edition of London's classic novel includes illustrations from the first edition as well as a link to a free unabridged audio recording of ‘White Fang.’
