Review

From the day of his birth, the wolf pup White Fang has had to fight for his life. His enemies were hunger, cold, and the teeth and claws of predators. Now, snatched from his forest home, he encounters a powerful new challenge to his survival. Will he be able to adapt, or will Man be the enemy that finally destroys White Fang? --From the Publisher --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Webster’s paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Spanish thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of White Fang by Jack London was edited for three audiences. The first includes Spanish-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL® or TOEIC® preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Spanish speakers enrolled in English speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Spanish in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement® (AP®) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Spanish or English. TOEFL®, TOEIC®, AP® and Advanced Placement® are trademarks of the Educational Testing Service which has neither reviewed nor endorsed this book.

Format: Paperback
This is three great books in one. One is the frequently used analogy of life as clay, where clay represents a creature`s givens, nature, instincts, physical form, and such, and the moulding (London's spelling) is the way that the clay responds to the events and forces of life. A second way is the nearly parable quality of the nature/nurture influences and compelling draws on one's development, and how this parallels human clay and mouldling. The third is the surface story. London's language is beautiful and spot-on in description and development. White Fang, born in the wilds of northwest Canada to a wolf father and a wolf/dog cross mother is the focus of the tale, the story's moving from before his birth, through time in the wild, to his involvement with humans. The transitions of White Fang's life are the moulding, but just as much, the heart of a well-told tale. In his life he faces a variety of challenges, some in nature, some of his `peers', and some from humans. The humans include both Native Americans and white folks of various temperaments and likability. This is a terrific story to enjoy on its surface merits, particularly if one is a `dog' person (as I am). As a conveyance to motivate thought on life and the twin influences on how it unfolds, it's a greater treasure, still.

Do you like wolves, adventure, and wildlife? Then White Fang by Jack London is a great book for you.

First, this book is adventuresome. White Fang goes on an adventure because his family threw him out of the pack so he lives in the wild and takes care of himself. While he is on his adventure, he gets in a fight with a bulldog and a female lynx. Does he win or does he lose? Read the book to find out.

Second, I like this book because it is exciting. White Fang goes to an Indian village and makes an Indian friend named Gray Beaver. Then he gets in a fight with Indian dogs that are nasty. Does he win or does he lose? Read the book to find out.

I recommend this book for anyone that likes wolves. It might be easy getting into this book, but it might be hard to get out of it.

This was one of my first enjoyable reads. I read it as a high school freshman and loved the book. I recently reread it at the age on sixty-six and found it equally fasinating. As a dog lover, I can especially appreciate the tribulations of White Fang. Highly recommended for readers of all ages!

My daughter is reading this for school and loved it. It's scary and emotional. It really made my daughter think about what the author was relaying ot the reader and we had wonderful conversations about the contents of the book.

Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for anybody who is fascinated by the Klondike, the outdoors, or the psychology of behavior. This extremely well written book goes into the depths of the mysteries of the unknown from an animal's perspective, and dives into how behavior and environments can mold someone. You'll find that this book is extremely hard to put down. This book is a great read, 4 stars.
