- WHITE FANG -Dover Thrift Editions
DetailsAnother outstanding title in the acclaimed series described as "a CD-ROM between covers." White Fang was written as the companion book to Jack London's classic 1903 runaway bestseller "The Call of the Wild."Seen through the eyes of White Fang--who is half dog, half wolf--the story follows the creature as he is forced to endure a series of harsh environments that turn him from his youthful innocence to mad-dog cruelty. That is, until a young man comes along and offers kindness and friendship. But friendship is something that White Fang doesn't understand...yet. "White Fang" is more than great storytelling.It is a careful study of the effects of our environments in forming who we are. With fascinating details of the Klondike gold rush and North American Indian life, it is also a remarkable snapshot of its time.With striking illustrations and extended captions unique to the "Whole Story" series, this striking edition provides background information modern readers could otherwise access only through a broad range of supplemental research. This distinctive approach places White Fang--first published in 1906--within the context of its era, bringing it vividly to life.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Novelist, journalist, and social activist Jack London (18761916) rose from abject poverty to international fame.
