From the Back Cover
When White Fang was first published in 1906, Jack London was well on his way to becoming one of the most famous, popular, and highly paid writers in the world. White Fang stands out as one of his finest achievements, a spellbinding novel of life in the northern wilds.
In gripping detail, London bares the savage realities of the battle for survival among all species in a harsh, unyielding environment. White Fang is part wolf, part dog, a ferocious and magnificent creature through whose experiences we see and feel essential rhythms and patterns of life in the animal kingdom and among mankind as well.
It is, above all, a novel that keenly observes the extraordinary working of one of nature's greatest gifts to its creatures: the power to adapt.
About the Author
Novelist, journalist, and social activist Jack London (1876–1916) rose from abject poverty to international fame. The bestselling, highest-paid, and most popular author of his era, London created a substantial body of work in his short life, drawing upon his experiences as a cannery worker, sailor, railroad hobo, and prospector.

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my review.
Even more uncomfortable to read were the descriptions of the beatings, and the minute details of the dog fights, described almost with enjoyment so much were they lingered over. I am not a huge animal lover, but intensely dislike any abuse of animals, and these descriptions were extremely difficult to read. If you are sensitive to this kind of thing, please be aware there is a large stomach-churning section that is very upsetting. The persecutor gets his comeuppance though, as do all villains.
Almost made me love the wilds of the Yukon, but not entirely - it's cold enough here in Toronto. :P
This book is a companion piece to Call of the Wild in the fact that it tells the opposite story. The story of a wolf who survives hardship and misery only to experience love and trust in his later years.
All is told from the wolf's point of view and except for Black Beauty I have never read a better attempt than this.
Bob Thomley is a great narrator who reads with great emphasis and empathy.
White Fang lived such a harsh life and I really was pulling for him to overcome that and find peace.
I love this book!
