White Fang ; And, the Call of the Wild
The biting cold and the aching silence of the far North become unforgettable backdrop for Jack London's vivid, rousing, superbly realistic wilderness classics. 'White Fang' tells the story of a magnificent wolf dog born wild and free who struggles to survive and is transformed from a ferocious beast to a 'blessed wolf', capable of great, uncompromising love. By contrast, 'The call of the Wild' features a gentle domestic dog driven by the cruelty of man to abandon civilization and return to the wilderness. Each novel is filed with action and suspense. But what makes 'The call of the wild' and 'The white fang' two masterpieces of American literature is Jack London's special knowledge of the Yukon and the behavior of humans facing nature at its cruelest, the fascinating lore of the wolf pack, and the ways of the wild itself.
