Author: Jack London

White Fang was a really enjoyable read to me. I expected no less from the author of The Call of the Wild of course, but the book offered a pretty realistic view from a wolf.

Quote :
White Fang is the title of a novel by American author Jack London. The novel was first serialized in The Outing Magazine in May to October 1906. It is the story of a wild wolfdog's journey toward becoming civilized in Yukon Territory, Canada, during the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. White Fang is a companion novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild, which concerns a kidnapped civilized dog turning into a wild animal.
Much of the novel is written from the view-point of animals, allowing London to explore how animals view their world and how they view humans. White Fang examines (sometimes graphically) the violent world of wild animals and the equally violent world of supposedly-civilized humans. The book also explores complex themes including morality and redemption.

It was an excellent read. Has anyone read this book yet?
