London, Jack: White Fang. v1, 2 Jan 2008
White Fang (1906) is the title of a novel by American author Jack London. The novel was first serialized in The Outing Magazine in May through October of 1906.
White Fang is the story of a wild wolf-dog hybrid'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 animal.
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.
