"I have been guilty of writing two books about dogs. The writing of these two stories, on my part, was in truth a protest against the "humanizing" of animals, of which it seemed to me several "animal writers" had been profoundly guilty. Time and again, and many times, in my narratives, I wrote, speaking of my dog-heroes: "He did not think these things; he merely did them," etc. And I did this repeatedly, to the clogging of my narrative and in violation of my artistic canons; and I did it in order to hammer into the average human understanding that these dog-heroes of mine were not directed by abstract reasoning, but by instinct, sensation and emotion, and by simple reasoning." ~Jack London
After the success of The Call of the Wild, Jack London turned to a different challenge: instead of telling the story of a domestic animal going wild, what about a wild animal becoming civilized? This novel follows the birth and raising of a wolf cub in the wild, who earns the name White Fang, but finds itself being broken by a man and finding his place in the world of humans.
This Canon Classic is full of adventure, excitement, and the thrill of the wilderness.
