Quick Reference

Novel by Jack London, published in 1906 as a complement to The Call of the Wild.

White Fang, offspring of an Indian wolf-dog and a wolf, is sold by his Indian owner to Beauty Smith, a white man who torments him to make him even more savage, in order that he may win in professional dogfights. He is rescued by a mining engineer, Weedon Scott, who subdues his ferocity by kindness. His master takes White Fang from his home in the Yukon to California, where the process of domestication is completed. There he is severely wounded while saving the Scott home from an attack by an escaped convict.
