Jack London’s tales are more than epics of hardship and survival—they are morality plays in which good wins over evil.

In the desolate, frozen wilds of northwest Canada, a wolf cub finds himself the sole survivor of his litter. Son of Kiche, half-wolf, half-dog, and the ageing wolf One Eye, he is thrust into a savage world where each day renews the struggle of survival. It is a lonely but noble life—until the day he is captured by dog-driving men. The cruel mistreatment he bears in this new life of slavery teaches him to hate.

Only one man sees beyond the rage of White Fang to his intelligence and dignity. Only one has the courage to offer the killer a new life. But can his kindness reach the heart of White Fang?

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 2/20/2014

    " This is my all time favorite book. I love the way the story is written, both of the stories. Both Buck and White Fang bring you through so many emotions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael.e.philpott | 2/20/2014

    " I think it's funny London is mainly known for these dog books. He's written much more, though mostly man vs. nature, the beast inside of man. It all builds a very Marxist, atheistic view of man and the world. Call of the wild is really no exception, neither is White Fang. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 2/20/2014

    " Dammit this book is great. It's about wolves, sure, but there really is a much deeper philosophical meaning, that probably says something really profound about the human condition (although that part mostly over my head). There's something about the way he writes that sort of draws you into his Alaskan wilderness. It's great, really truly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carissa Anne | 2/19/2014

    " The beginning of The Call of the Wild was nothing more than a glorified tale of animal abuse. As a vegetarian and animal lover, my stomach was in constant turmoil in response to the horrid deaths and terrible whipping and clubbing endured by these creatures. For that reason alone, I won't read White Fang, as I have heard it is more of the same. I give this one star for an interesting dog's point of view, one for the beautiful scenery and realistic interaction between the animals, and one for everything that happened after John Thornton entered the picture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 dara | 2/18/2014

    " I read both books in one day. It was a nice escape. I know there's potential to analyze it in a way that would depress me thoroughly, relating it to the reality of human cruelty and indifference, but for now I'll just let it be the story that it is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meri | 2/18/2014

    " Fascinated me in junior high, then amazed me in grad school; London's realism appeals to all, which is both fascinating and amazing! I remember my experience of reading "To Build a Fire" as if it were yesterday...it was actually over 20 years ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Johns | 2/17/2014

    " I know I know, it's a classic. But...I'm just not that into it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ethan | 2/17/2014

    " found this book to be a great read and kept my attention throughout the whole story. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and nature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 2/17/2014

    " awesome book but so sad! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Whitmore sunday | 2/17/2014

    " Read while my son was reading as required school novel. Good, quick read on a cold night that mirrored the Alaskan tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Epi | 2/14/2014

    " I read this book in the 5th grade, it was my favorite book back then. It's a survival story, and a good one at that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H R Koelling | 2/11/2014

    " Hadn't read these novelettes since high school and I was amazed at how well Jack London wrote. The stories don't seemed outdated at all. Great imagery and really in-depth character development. He was a true master. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wolffang | 2/8/2014

    " I love wolves. I love Jack London. These 2 books are THE BEST!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika Booms | 2/5/2014

    " AMAZING. Jack London is king. Favorite book of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 2/3/2014

    " As a boy, I must have read this book at least 5 times. I loved it much more than Call of the Wild. I think the friendship between the boy and his dog/wolf represented something I would have liked to have experienced. It was one of the first books I checked out on my first library card. I might try it again sometime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 2/3/2014

    " I really enjoyed how this book went through White Fang's life, and how it explained how he came to exist, and how he turned mean, but then became tame again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam Gaston | 2/3/2014

    " Storyline can be boring and really only picks up in the end. Also, for any highschooler reading it, keep a dictionary on hand. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Samantha | 2/3/2014

    " I was bored out of my mind when iI read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 2/2/2014

    " Read it when I was still a little girl back in the swamps of southern Louisiana... it helped to shape my life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 2/2/2014

    " Not much of a dog fan, but absolutely appreciated this glimpse into a dog's life. Very beautifully told, and I really enjoyed it, especially the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marieka | 2/2/2014

    " The most important book of my childhood. Very exciting story! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 cait | 1/30/2014

    " Didn't "get" it. I'm afraid I prefer Jack London's quotes on writing to his view of the dog life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 1/29/2014

    " Jack London has a terrific writing style, but the content is dry for my taste. As it has been several years since I last read this work, however, perhaps a re-reading would alter my initial observations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sariana lanely | 1/29/2014

    " This was a good book. I am not that into wildlife and killing books but this one was good. I hated how sad the life of White Fang was in the beginning, but then loved the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Galanti | 1/28/2014

    " Both of these tales, one of a civilized dog who embraces the wild after he is stolen and one of a wild dog tamed by the love of a man...are both masterpieces that embrace the animal and flawed humanity in man and the the beasts that show us so and brave so much. Both are raw, emotional tales told in sparse, beautiful language that gnaw at you long after you put them down. First read at age 12, and enjoyed again as much at 41. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Behn | 1/27/2014

    " Probably one of my favorite books of all time, and one of the many I wished would continue longer, or have a sequel. These books were my introduction to reading at a higher level, and London is a masterful writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Cook | 1/27/2014

    " i love these little pocket books. a great couple of stories as well. quintessential London. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 1/26/2014

    " Nature enthusiasts will enjoy both these tales, though having never read them in my youth, I found some parts surprisingly more violent than I'd expected these classic "kid's stories" to be; almost too graphic and descriptive in the telling of bloodletting, at times. Yet this is likely exactly as London wanted: tales that capture the lessons of Nature in Her rawness; of harsh realities, adaptation, survival, and ultimately triumph through adversity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 1/26/2014

    " Dammit this book is great.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tun Lam | 1/25/2014

    " Truly pain and fear. Truly wild heart "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Field | 1/23/2014

    " Good adventure from start to finish. Hope I never bump into a wolf! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandbutterfly | 1/22/2014

    " a great book but more than likely it will make you cry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margie | 1/21/2014

    " I liked reading a book about the transformation of a dog from the dog's perspective. Buck made decisions that affected his life and while no one can really know if a dog has decision-making skills per se, after getting to know my husband's dogs and seeing their distinct personalities, one of whom was a husky that was driven to explore, you just can't say "it's not possible" with any degree of certainty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Urbanski | 1/20/2014

    " Brilliant! Buck is the fiercest, most unbreakable creature. Inspirational. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Addie | 1/20/2014

    " it was borin and it carried on along way "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Petree | 1/20/2014

    " **This book is not the same edition that I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 1/19/2014

    " I loved this book when I was younger. As an animal lover (especially dogs!) I love when animals are the main characters of the story. Jack London did a great job of going into the mind of Buck and his transition from a housepet to a strong, rough, brave wild dog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Attack_of_the_woggles | 1/18/2014

    " THe book call of the wild touches peoples heart through how Jack london describes how the animals were ill-treated and half starved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elliott K | 1/18/2014

    " Swiss family Robinson and this are my favorite classics EVER!!! "

    " One of my childhood favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Jones | 1/18/2014

    " Wonderful book!! I highly recommend it to everyone. I can't say enough about how great this book is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff | 1/17/2014

    " This is possibly one of the most underated books of all time (by that I mean "White Fang"). It is masterfully told and is worth a read. Possibly one of my favourite books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 1/14/2014

    " Read this combo of his two classics on our trip to Alaska...made them even more interesting as we headed north. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 1/13/2014

    " This isn't the sort of book which I usually read. It's the story of White Fang, a wolf with a bit of domestic dog in his bloodline. It starts in Canada where White Fang is born and follows his life to eventual domestication. I read this book mainly because it was mentioned by the Mitford sisters and I was curious to know what it was about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marieka | 1/13/2014

    " The most important book of my childhood. Very exciting story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. | 1/13/2014

    " These books involve animal cruelty and animal compassion by humans. In both stories, nature and animals are powerfully connected, and you will leave these books feeling you understand dogs firsthand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thuỳ Vân | 1/12/2014

    " And, I've pretend as if I was at grade 6, reading the story again. It's simply a little happiness, a little joy when you buy a book and at the same time you had bought a ticket leading the way back to your sweet childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keosha | 1/11/2014

    " Jack London is the reason why I started to get into books. I love the whole view from an animal thing. "

    " This is beautiful. Wish I would have found it sooner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/6/2014

    " I read this book about 30 years ago when I was ten. It has remained a favorite and I actually reread it a couple of times during my teen years. It is a great classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 1/5/2014

    " These two books are the best to have ever been written. "

    " the best narration i had ever read,the main character a dog(i thought i should write here dog or not b'coz i am so full of respect for it and "dog" word is not appropriate it seems).Its been pleasure reading to this tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 12/19/2013

    " Timeless stuff, for almost any age. Reread at 40 year intervals, and confirmed my affection for London. Among the essential pieces everyone should read. Has well survived the hardest test, that of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 12/19/2013

    " This is not a book for people who are sensitive about the maltreatment of animals, or who dislike intense descriptions of raw, bloody nature. London's writing leaves little to the imagination and the relentless cruelty makes for a challenging read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elyse | 12/17/2013

    " Never read it as a kid, and I will never want to read it again! Just too emotionally moving. "

    " Re-read. As solidly enjoyable as ever, although if you described London's writing style to me I never would think it as capable as it is of describing the brutal toils of sled dogs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tun Lam | 11/13/2013

    " Truly pain and fear. Truly wild heart "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 11/3/2013

    " These are two amazingly written, brutal, beautiful stories. What insights into the mind of an animal. What fabulous scenery! What adventure! They are both love stories of a sort and transport you to the Yukon and everywhere else the story takes us. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy Mitchell | 11/1/2013

    " Interesting read from a realistic animal POV. Enlightens you to the Darwinistic view of nature and animal behaviour. A good storyline and lots of adventure as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellis | 10/7/2013

    " How can it have taken me this long to read local boy Jack London? Spectacular, especially The Call of the Wild. I don't know how I feel about this Hallmark edition, but the cover IS fuzzy, so I'm hesitantly giving it a thumbs-up. "

    " Brilliant. No wonder these are regarded as classics. As the synopsis suggests, reading the two novella together is a good idea. These reminded me of Black Beauty in style, yet London captures the harshness of the Northland and its people with the ever-present "Wild" that sets these two works apart. "

    " I'm a science fiction fan, and as a science fiction fan I really enjoyed Call of the Wild and White Fang. There's something very alien about "The Wild" as Jack London describes it, and science fiction writers could learn a lot form his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 8/27/2013

    " I only read The Call of the Wild, haven't read White Fang yet. Stories about animals are also at the top of my list and I think Jack London did an amazing job narrating. It is captivating how he uses words to paint the picture, you don't even need an imagination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rex | 6/14/2013

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
