The Call of the Wild and White Fang
Jack London’s The Call of the Wild and White Fang are both adventure stories featuring animal protagonistsa sled dog named Buck and the appropriately named White Fang. Partially told from the perspective of the dogs, these stories gave London the opportunity to explore and predict how animals perceive our world. Buck was Judge Miller’s pet and lived happily in Santa Clara Valley, California. Until one day, when he’s kidnapped by the gardener’s assistant and sold to traders. Eventually he ends up in the Klondike region of Canada, where he is trained to become a sled dog. After he witnesses a fellow sled dog killed by a pack of huskies, Buck starts to shed his domesticated habits and embrace his primordial instincts in order to survive.
White Fang, in a similar vein, tells the tale of another caninea young gray wolf cub who is the strongest of his litter. As he grows, White Fang begins to understand the nature of the wildernessthat it is survival of the fittest: The aim of life was meat. Life itself was meat. Life lived on life. There were the eaters and the eaten. The law was: EAT OR BE EATEN.” After wandering into an Indian camp, losing his mother, being severely beaten, and being forced into dog-fighting, his life is forever changed as he struggles to find his place in the animal kingdom.
In these classic novels, London explores the remarkable relationship between man and beast.
