White Fang

White Fang


Set in the freezing wastelands of the northern wilds, Jack London’s majestic adventure tale is a moving story of cruelty and redemption

The wolf-dog White Fang, born in the biting cold and aching silence of the Yukon, grows up to learn the harsh laws of nature, and must struggle to survive in a human society every bit as violent and savage as the natural world – until he is offered the chance to trust, and to change.
