Born in the wild to a half-wolf mother and wolf father, White Fang grows up wary and smart. "Eaten or be eaten" is the code of the north woods, and that's all he knows. When food becomes scarce, White Fang is forced to befriend some humans to survive. Some people cruelly foster the ferocity of his wild ancestors while others exploit him for their selfish gain. Finally, White Fang is rescued by a California man and his family and he is treated kindly and lovingly. But can the wilderness and violence that is his nature be tamed with warmth, love, and affection? Or will he be true to his ancestors and answer the call of the wild?
The Savagery of the Wild
He was three quarters wolf and all fury. Born in a cave, in famine, in the frozen arctic. Born in a world where the weak died without mercy, where only the swift, the strong, the cunning saw each dawn. It was White Fangs world--- until he and his mother were captured by the man-gods.
The Cruelty of Man
But men and their dogs taught White Fang to hate. He was beaten, abused, attacked. He was bought, sold, torture, trained to kill in blood sports. Knowing no kindness, he became a mad, lethal creature of pure rage.
The Power of One
Only one man saw White Fangs intelligence and nobility. Only one had courage to offer the killer a new life. But can a wolf understand the word hope? Can a creature of hatred understand the word love?
