White Fang

ByJack London

Published in 1906 by MacMillan, White Fang was written as a follow up to Call of the Wild, seeking to feed off the popularities of that first book. It follows the birth of the 'wolf-dog, White Fang, including the circumstances of his arrival for his parents, his subsequent adoption by an Indian Tribe during which time he is brutalised and reacts accordingly, his time as a fighting dog and finally his taming by a kindly gold prospector. In contract to Buck's story in Call of the Wild, which moved from domestication to instinct, White Fang moves in the opposite direction and though he ends his time equally mythologised, in some respects it’s a less climactic path with the tension easing if a little unevenly. Even if it doesn't work quite as well as the first book, White Fang still remains immensely popular.
