White Fang

Post by MajesticWolfs » Sun Jun 28, 2009 11:19 am

White Fang is an adventure story full of dramatic turns and twists.
The book is about two men are out in the wild of the north. Their dogs disappear as they are lured by a she-wolf and eaten by the pack. They only have three bullets left and Bill, one of the men, uses them to try to save one of their dogs; he misses and is eaten with the dog. Only Henry and two dogs are left; he makes a fire, trying to drive away the wolves. They draw in close, and he is almost eaten, saved only by a company of men who were traveling nearby.

The wolves are in the midst of a famine. They continue on, lead by several wolves alongside the she-wolf, and when they finally find food the pack starts to split up. The she-wolf mates with one of the wolves and has a litter of pups. Only one survives after several more famines, and he grows strong and is a feisty pup.

They come to an Indian village where the she-wolf's (who is actually half-wolf, half-dog) master is. He catches her again and White Fang, her pup, stays nearby. Soon, she is sold to another Indian, while White Fang stays with Gray Beaver, her master. The other dogs of the village terrorize White Fang, especially one named Lip-lip.

White Fang becomes more and more vicious, encouraged by his master. He kills other dogs. Gray Beaver goes to Fort Yukon to trade and discovers whiskey. White Fang is passed into the hands of Beauty Smith, a monster of a man. He fights other dogs until he meets his match in a bulldog and is saved only by a man named Scott.

Scott tames White Fang and takes him back to California with him. There White Fang learns to love his master and his master's family and even saves Scott's father from a criminal that escaped from the nearby prison. White Fang has puppies with Collie, one of the master's dogs, and lives a happy life.

I haven't fully read this book and purely despise the ending.

You peeked? I adore this book. It was really good, especially since I love Jack London's writings. Call of the Wild is good, also.

Jack London is an excellent author, and I love most of his books.
White Fang is great, but I would have to say I like "Call of the Wild" better. Like you, I didn't care for the ending. I thought he could do better. ;D
"Call of the Wild" is a bit like the same story, only backwards.

I loved this book. It was well written, and well executed. I loved the ending! In Call of The Wild it really is backwards. Anyway I loved this book I've read it at least a hundred times. ;)

I truly enjoy this book and the ending, as well, though White Fang mating with Collie was a bit odd for me, because I thought Collie hated White Fang and would never get induced by him and mate with him. I thought her dislike towards him would stop that. Oh well. Jack London is a fantastic writer that should have lived forever to write more fantastic stories.

i beleive white fang is one of my favorite books. as some of you said and i agree i didnt like the way he ended most of his books but i like the story within them. I like how it told of a wild beast that came to love the one person that was nice to him. i enjoyed this book a lot. and hope to read more in the future.

White Fang was a really good book, I think the ending could have been better though. I havent read Call of the Wild yet, but I think I will soon. ^^

This would have to be one of my favorite classics, right beside "Call of the Wild". I think Jack London is a really good author. I didn't care for the ending much, but the book itself was very good.

I do love this book but do agree- the ending could be better. I will say I more enjoyed Call of the Wild, though

Oh, I love this book- but I feel so sorry for White Fang- he gets beaten, chased by the puppy-pack, and his mother gets taken away! Poor guy... :(

I LOVE that book. :D White Fang is my idol, even though he doesn't follow the rules. I love animal stories, but I really like realistic ones for some reason. I'm asking for the book for Christmas, and I'm going to try to watch every movie there is. Although I doubt that'll ever happen. :mrgreen: But yeah, this is definitely one of my favorite books of all time.
