Джек Лондон White Fang. Part I. Chapter i-the trail of the meat.

Джек Лондон White Fang. Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness.

Love of Life, and Other Stories.

Not only was White Fang adaptable by nature, but he had travelled much,and knew the meaning and necessity of adjustment. Here, in Sierra Vista,which was the name of Judge Scott's place, White Fang quickly began tomake himself at home. He had no further serious trouble with the dogs. They knew more about the ways of the Southland gods than did he, and intheir eyes he had qualified when he accompanied the gods inside thehouse. Wolf that he was, and unprecedented as it was, the gods hadsanctioned his presence, and they, the dogs of the gods, could onlyrecognise this sanction. Chapter i-the trail of the meat

White Fang is a novel by American author Jack London (1876–1916) - and the name of the book's eponymous character, a wild wolfdog. First serialized in Outing magazine, it was published in 1906. The story details White Fang's journey to domestication in Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush.

There at the fort, White Fang becomes famous for his ferocious ability to kill other dogs, and he is sought after by a vicious, ugly man named, ironically, Beauty Smith, who, by using trickery and alcohol, is able to trick Gray Beaver into selling White Fang to him. White Fang is treated terribly by this cruel man; he is constantly forced into bloody fights with other dogs so that Smith can win bets. But during one fight with a bulldog, White Fang is at the point of being killed when a man named Weedon Scott, a person of distinction and authority, interferes and stops the fight.

White Fang is a companion novel to The Call of the Wild. White Fang" is part dog, part wolf and all brute, living in the frozennorth; he gradually comes under the spell of man's companionship, andsurrenders all at the last in a fight with a bull dog. Thereafter he isman's loving slave. That night, when supper was finished and they sat on the oblong box and pulled at their pipes, the circle of gleaming eyes drew in even closer than before. I wisht they'd spring up a bunch of moose or something, an' go away an' leave us alone," Bill said.

White Fang is a novel written by Jack London and it’s about the life in the wilderness in the south and the way human’s behavior effects the formation of animal’s behavior. In this story, we keep up with a wolf named White Fang in different eras of his life. We see how he adapts to different conditions, new surroundings and how he changes his behavior in different situations. All of the events for the second part on are narrated from White Fang’s perspective. The novel has five parts and in each one, we learn something about a different part of White Fang’s life

Part dog and part wolf, White Fang is, along with his mother Kiche, the sole survivor of his pack. When he and Kiche are taken in by an Indian tribe, White Fang begins a journey from Wild to Domesticated that is long, arduous, and painful.
White Fang by Jack London is a companion to London’s Call of the Wild, told mostly from the animal’s point of view. This reissue of a London classic has some editorial revisions, according to the publishers, but retains the author’s voice and ability to portray the untamed frontier of his day. For a reader who wants to be introduced, or as in my case, reintroduced, to a classical American literary figure, this book is an excellent jumping off point. The characters, though animal, are portrayed in terms that humans can understand, but without ‘humanizing’ them.
This book shows why Jack London was one of the most regarded authors of his time. I received a free copy of this book, and without hesitation, give it five stars.

I didn’t care for this classic. There was a lot of telling and not much showing, so I felt removed from the characters and couldn’t empathize with them very much. The omniscient point of view probably had a lot to do with that, too. I realize London's writing is an older style, typical of his time, so I only took off half a star for my not being able to connect with the characters.

I cringed at the portrayal of the Indians. Their survival in the wilderness speaks of innovation and cleverness, but London wrote instead about their violence and drunkenness and how they laughed derisively at White Fang. I don’t feel bad about taking off half a star for this.

I took off another star because the story is so oddly told. We never again see the musher who’s at the beginning of the book. He (and another fellow) take up a lot of pages, but he’s not a main character. In fact, the main human character doesn’t show up until half way through the book. And later, the book ends abruptly. Very odd.

I did enjoy the descriptions of the wilderness and could practically feel the icy winter. The gory animal violence and cruel human violence were described so well that I felt queasy, so it was a worthwhile read, just not a satisfactory read. Three stars.

I have loved these stories since childhood, and I was very excited to revisit them as audiobooks now that I'm an adult with a long commute. The stories were just as fantastic as I remember! The narration was also excellent. I enjoyed the narrator's style because it allowed me to be immersed into the story. Overall, I highliy recommend this audiobook to anyone. It's a 2-for1 deal with great narration and fantastic stories!

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my review.

Use caution... if you have difficulty with small print, you may want to choose another printer. The print is SMALL, although not as small as other books. Everything else so far is fine. Cover is quite nice, an the pages are a reasonable thickness.

As I said, I was deeply into Les Miserables, both the Kindle version and the Audible version, but the author goes off into several long five hour philosophy tangents and I needed a break from one of these. There was none finer than “White Fang.” Yes, I have read several of Jack London’s wonderful books before, and each reading has been wonderful. Having the Audible to go with the Kindle version made this current experience all the more terrific. I highly recommend combining the two mediums together for greater entertainment and increased comprehension.

Got this for my 12 year old daughter to read, and she loves it. I read it in middle school and loved it, so I'm happy she's enjoying it. This is definitely a classic, great story, but readers will do well to remember that is was written in a time before the PC Police existed. I've used it as an opportunity to teach my daughter a lesson in right, wrong, and popular opinion.
I know it's a classic and it is a great story filled with amazing imagery. For that, I like it quite a bit.

But, to this reader, 3 sentences in every paragraph could be cut and the book could still hold together. Especially when Jack is talking about meat. We get it Jack! Animals eat meat and aren't all ceremonial about it!

Anyways... fairly entertaining book with some of the dryness you'd expect with the age. The first part of the book is a great hook and it all flows perfectly. Great adventure.
