Overview

White Fang by Jack London details the journey of a wild wolfdog's journey to domestication. It is a companion novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild, which is about a kidnapped, domesticated dog embracing his wild ancestry to survive and thrive in the wild.

Much of White Fang is written from the viewpoint of the main canine character, enabling London to explore how animals view their world and how they view humans. White Fang examines the violent world of wild animals and the equally violent world of humans. The book also explores complex themes including morality and redemption.

The story takes place in Yukon Territory, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush. London himself lived for most of a year in the Yukon collecting material for The Call of the Wild.
