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. There was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness—a laughter that was mirthless as the smile of the sphinx, a laughter cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility. It was the masterful and incommunicable wisdom of eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It was the Wild, the savage, frozen-hearted Northland Wild.

White fang as it may be slow at the beginning, in my opinion because of the first two people you meet Bob and Henry, the book picks up and as you turn the pages I believe that this book is a example of the true talent Jack London had in creating a grip full and surprisingly human story that is true to the 20th centrey and how diffrent owners treated their dogs. Just the very aspect of it not even being mainly about a human surprises me because of how much you can relate to White fang and the people she meets as well how the people change the way White fang act. I think you can relate to this because we all have aspects of this in their attitude and have eather been on the offenceive or defenceive side of those attitudes, exscuding the act of kindness that some inhabit as a way of life. once i finished this book i didnt have a empty feeling that i ushally have with books like this. i learned from reading this book that no matter what kind of people you meet in this world, to never give up on them because there will always be somwone out there who isnt going to be cruel and make fun of you because you diffrent, and i belive that this book shows a great example of that and has a great moral snuck in as well.

White Fang is one of the best novels that I have ever read, and I have read many things.
