Author(s): Jack London
Set in the frozen mountains of Northwest Canada, the book 'White Fang' recounts the dangerous adventures of a half-wolf, half-dog cub that must fight to live in his savage surroundings. Turned violent by human abuse, White Fang is only able to trust again because of the kindness and patience of one man.
Jack London (1876--1916) was born John Chaney in Pennsylvania, USA. In 1896 he was caught up in the gold rush to the Klondike river in north-west Canada, which became the inspiration for The Call of the Wild (1903) and White Fang (1906). Jack London became one of the most widely read writers in the world.
