In the amassing story White Fang By Jack London the author teaches you to keep moving on. This is because through out the story white fang (the main character) faces many problems such as losing his mother, getting into illegal dog fights, and many more, but despite that he kept moving on. The story begins with two men mushing (dog sledding) up in the mountains of Alaska. Soon their dogs start to disappear one by one, this is because of a she-wolf and her pack of wolfs killing them. One night Henry (one of the men) spots the wolfs trying to eat one their dogs. Immediately got his gun out, sadly it only had 3 bullets. As quick as possible Henry charged towards the wolf's. Henry fired his gun but sadly missed. Before Henry could reload his gun one of the wolfs pounced on him and killed him leaving Bill (the other man) all alone. Luckily Bill scared off the wolfs by using fire. Afterwards the wolfs regrouped. The she-wolf then found a mate and had puppies, unfortunately only one of the pups survived. The she-wolf and white fang(the pup) then returned to a native American village where the she-wolf's master lived. Soon the master sold the she-wolf to another man leaving White fang all alone with Gray beaver(The master). Time went on and white fang grew more vicious each day. Grey beaver then decided to move to another city. Once there Gary beaver encountered beauty smith(a monster of a man) and was forced to give white fang to him. Beauty Smith then started to make white fang more vicious. Afterward he put white fang in illegal dog fights. White fang kept wining and wining, until one day that he met his match a bulldog. White fang fought but got injured and almost died luckily a young man named Scott save his life. Scott then tamed white fang and brought him to California whit him where he lived a happy life. This book has been one of the best ones I've read. This is because this book has action, drama, and suspense all packed into one book. I also recommend The Call of the wild By Jack London. I recommend this book to anyone who likes action and suspense.

I read White Fang when I was eleven or twelve and I found it to be fascinating, exciting (physical action + phsycological drama) but a bit sad. I wasn't very affected at that age by the content (other than maybe tearing up a couple of times) but I don't recommend it for younger readers AT ALL unless they can handle the content. It doesn't contain anything bad, but wolves are violent animals sometimes (especially when hungry or starving) and they kill some travelers and eat them in the story. A mature twelve-year-old could MAYBE read it, but not for little kids who do not understand the violence of nature yet. Other than that, AWESOME read! Loved it, suchba classic!!!

For the complaints on grammar and language, keep in mind it was written nearly a century ago. Many of Jack London's works were inspired by his true life experiences. While he never struck it rich, Jack came back from his hunt for Yukon gold with something that would last far longer than mere gold: the embryos of many books/short stories that not only are great stories, but provide a glimpe into a world long gone, a time vastly different fom ours.

This book was so,awespiring and so many things that are beyond words.I have not read a book that makes me fall in love with the characters so easily,i slipped right into the book.It was like it was just me and the book.White fang is born in the wild later into returning to a tribe with his mother.Later on a man forces and bribes Grey Beaver (White fangs master)into giving him White fang.The man (Beast of a man) turns White fang into a meaner wolf.The man who now holds White fang is in a illegal dog fighting ring.White fang known as a champion and never losing his footing,one day meets his match (A bull dog) the bull dog had White fang by the throat.Luckily a man Samson and his friend come by.Samsom and his friend save White fang. The more White Fang stays with the men,the more he grows use to Samson.Samson leaves on day and comes back to sew White fang.When Samson leaves again he takes White Fang with him to his home.When a cirmanal escapes prison he turns up into Samsons house,and White Fang attacks the crimanal,but gets injured.In the end White fang is called "Blessed Wolf". This story takes you through White Fangs life. To living with his mother that was sold to man,and leaving White fang heart broken. Then going through nothing but violence and hatred in the illegle act. And yet in the end he learns love,kindness,and having a real family. Through all the rough times White fang held on and kept going. This is a book for every one to read.

This book is awsome. When I first read it, I was too young to understand it but now that I know the 'big words' it has become one of the best books I have ever read (second only to Call of the Wild). Jack London is a sensational writer. You read the whole thing from the wolf's point of view. It's amazing!!!

You guys are unbeleivable. White Fang is a classic! Find some other books to rp at!!!!!!! We read this book in my English class this year and our teacher told us that we could find them on kindle or nook for free! Now I see your ads in the erin hunter books and it makes me want to cry and hit you, seeing what has happened to these stories. Didn't you know that there are some rules that have to be followed? First, you're not allowed to rp on any books that have at least 40 reviews. I will now add to that. You shouldn't post anything but reviews on classics. PERIOD!!!!!! Nothing but reviews! I'm an rper myself, but if I come across a bestseller, classic, or a very popular book, I don't post wothless crap on it! Now scram! Find a different search! And if i find you on another classic, you have something coming to you.

Iceshard, Stormfire, Dovepaw, Goldthunder, and Amberspark - to ALL. I dropped my nook, and now the screen is messed up. Don't worry, I'm doing a reset on it by letting it fully discharge. However, this process may take a month or so. If you need me, please remember to e<_>ma<_>il me at Umbreo<_>2000<_>@<_>gm<_>ail<_>.<_>c<_>om Never give up, Wolfclan! See ya soon!

I luv this book. This book has alot of grammer mistakes though. I recommend this to people 10 and up but if you 9 or under it would be better for an adult to read it that way they can sencor the bad word. :D luv the book though. Better than Wolves of the Beyond. Ok mabey a tie between them.

B & N Says this book has been digitized, but it's very obvious that it has actually been re-typed into the current format. The only digitizing done was on the pages where the artwork is, and those are too dark to make much sense of. There are many pages missing in one large chunk of the book missing, as though whomever was typing was careless about turning pages, and the unbelievable amount of typos makes it almost impossible to read. I'm glad it was a free copy or I'd have been extremely unhappy with it. As for the actual story it is a great read, especially for those who like history/adventure/wolf/dog stories. I gave it five stars for the story,I'd give it -5 stars for the quality of the reading experience.
