  • ""White Fang is the story of a wild dog's journey toward becoming civilized in the Canadian territory of Yukon 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 wolf. The book is characteristic of London's precise prose style and his innovative use of voice and perspective. Much of the novel is written from the view-point of the 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" -- from publisher's web site."
