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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “In sheer force of delineation, passionate feeling for the wilderness and for the things that live in it, The Call of the Wild is quite unsurpassed in American writing. It is fully matched in both these respects by White Fang...wonderfully convincing. No stronger piece of work in this field has appeared.”

    New York Independent

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Whitmore sunday | 2/12/2014

    " 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 Travis Doig | 2/5/2014

    " I revisited Jack London's Call of the Wild after 8 years and it mesmerized me then as it did today. London is superb at moving the plot along with his straight forward and direct style that makes reading his work a thoroughly enjoyable experience. White Fang, started slowly, but picked up and struck a chord where I felt a kindred spirit of this creature, particularly upon the transformation from hate-filled fiend to adoring companion. Both are great reads, and both will take readers on a thrilling adventure of the imagination to lands far north. "

    " Read Call of the Wild, now on White Fang. "

    " ehh okay i guess not my thing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mai Nguyen | 1/30/2014

    " I absolutely love White Fang. It's quite unexpected how London starts his story with the she-wolf and not directly with the main character. I was caught unexpected so i read on eagerly. Throughout the story, nobody can miss that london is a faithful believer of Darwin's survival of the fittest. What worst, he keeps on reminding of how "the clay is mold into different shapes depends on the environment." It gets on my nerve sometimes feeling I'm being preached. I didn't think I'd like it until the part when White Fang meets his love-god Scout. I actually cried when his master decides to leave White Fang behind and locks him in the cabin. It's such a memorable, powerful story one hardly comes across in literature. ^^! "

    " Loved the dog fighting scenes - not the actual fights you understand "

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

    " 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 Amy | 1/22/2014

    " At my parents house, there is a set of Jack London books and short stories that sits on the shelf in our living room. I have tender memories of those books, because when I was a little girl my Daddy would read them to me. White Fang and The Call of the Wild were my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael de Percy | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sourabh | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/12/2014

    " I adore both of these books (esp. White Fang) - adventure, love, and the human/animal relationship. "

    " Good book for kids. My grandson was reading it in Missouri, and he said he didn't like it that much. I sat down and read it one day while he was in school. I enjoyed it. Would recommend it to my cub scouts. "

    " I read this as a teenager and loved the stories and the settings and re read it regularly too. Its a powerful story and one that just engrosses you from beginning to end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael.e.philpott | 12/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen Radtke | 12/17/2013

    " This book has never lost its appeal. "

    " My fifth grade teacher read White Fang aloud to our class way back in 1971. I was mesmerized by London's language and the images he conjured up in my mind. I read Call of the Wild later and decided then and there that Jack London was up there on my favorite authors list. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karina | 11/28/2013

    " White fang was better than call of the wild. But enough is enough of brutal dog beatings. I think it's a mans book. No thanks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 cartercam | 11/1/2013

    " I'm actually not sure I've read Call of the Wild before now, but it was shorter than I expected. I didn't find much depth, but enjoyed the story nonetheless. White Fang was as heart wrenching as I remembered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy Lewis | 10/2/2013

    " Somewhat simplistic, I was expecting more. Not deserving of the Top 100 label, except for its enduring popularity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 9/25/2013

    " 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. "

    " I read this when I was young, and have memories of loving both of the books. Probably one of my favorite books growing up. "

    " 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 Ben | 12/11/2012

    " 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. "

    " Read White Fang this year, which was the worst of any of the stories of his I've read, but notable for its masculinist author using the word puppypack. CotW is good, though, and The Sea-Wolf is awesome. A classic. "

    " I just couldn't get into this. It's very violent and dark - not my thing at all. Well written, to be sure, but the content was insurmountable in my mind and kept me from enjoying this. "

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.
