Jack London’s classic novel of the adventures of a domesticated wolf-dog, sometimes viewed as metaphor for the way primitive man came to be civilized. The novel was originally published in serial in Outing magazine, and when it was released proved immensely popular. Indeed, White Fang would help enshrine London as an American household name. It has since been translated into over 89 languages and adapted into multiple films. “His vigorous, incisive style, unconventionality, and sympathetic understanding of nature and of her children in the rough, never combined to better advantage than in “White Fang.” (Contemporary New York Times Review) Fine (Item #2090)
